This is an update of the original Blog that used Freegeoip.net API a then free API. As of July 2018 the old Freegeoip API was discontinued and a completely re-designed API has been provided at http://api.ipstack.com. While the new API offers the same capabilities as the old one and also has the option of returning data in the legacy format, the API URL has now changed and all users are required to sign up for a free API Access Key to use the service. Fortunately the limit is 10000 calls per month. I have updated the code in the Github repository and I removed the Direct Viewer.
The purpose of the project is to update ip-addresses on to a World Map as shown in action using my own personal signed up API key.
Creating a free account is effortless and on signing up you are presented with a key and a lot of information on how to access the IPStack site. I have updated the SRC code and simply add your key in to the code where asked for and the project will run normally.
Calling the newer https://ipstack.com Server…
The old to the new increased available results...
This holds server side code that receives the IP Address in a ‘Post Request’ then calls the https://ipstack.com API rest-server and receives the JSON response.
The JSON is decoded to an Array and this then adjusted to fit the Jvector Map marker format. This JSON styled object is sent to the Browser.
Feel free to download the Code from The Github Repository,
