For those with large web and streaming-media server logs, the ability to geocode IP addresses be an excellent feature, similar to Alteryx's ability go geocode street addresses. Several IP geocoding services exist, with different levels of accuracy and cost. Ideally, the user should be able to choose their own service if they have one, in addition to a default service built-in to Alteryx.
A proof of concept is documented in this post.
The IP geocoding tools should include:
- IP address to IP number conversion, and the reverse
- IPv4 and IPv6
- Output for postal code, country, city, state, latitude/longitude centeroids
