Thanks to ipinfo.io for supporting this project.

This script collects the ip location data from ipinfo.io If you have an add blocker it will prevent this action, so you need to disable the add blocker for this page.

Clear all data

Select a key from ipinfo.io

If the first key doesn't work, try the second.

Paste the text from the results of your traceroute into the box below.

How to interpret the results

Locations shown in the centre of a country are not actually there. Only the country is given.

Not all routers are set to give the correct location. They may simply give the default country of manufacture and have never been set

More often routers give no geographic locations so that they cannot be mapped - for security

Routers on internal networks are not mapped.
