    I've never used this but geolocation is a function of HTML5 so a good starting point, as always, is W3Schools: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_geolocation.asp
    And a web search produced a little tutorial on how to link geolocation to Google maps: http://www.paulund.co.uk/how-to-use-...th-google-maps
    and also this one: http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2013...5-geolocation/

    Welcome to the forums codinglite!

    Are you just trying to get the geolocation of the user connecting to your website? If so, then I suggest using either HTML5's built-in method, as suggested by the_cat.

    However, from the 2 examples you produced, it looks like you are attemping to get information about specific locations not that of the user accessing the webpage. If this is the case, I would look into geoPlugin. It's a great, simple to use, free PHP plugin for geolocation interaction.
    If the post was helpful...Rate it! Remember to use [code] or [php] tags.

    I have started this via google maps and jquery.

    I got a python script and I never used it.
    Do you know how can I use this script via jquery or python.? http://www.offensivecountermeasures....pics/pushpin-1

    The script is written in Python, so it would have to be processed on the server-side. Do you have any experience with server-side scripting?

    Note 2 things about the script right off.
    • The script was posted 3.5 years ago. In the life of web APIs, it's quite possible that they have differed somehow. You might not get the same results as when the script was first written.
    • Yahoo does not have an actual URL based API access to geolocation information. So it is routed through a 3rd party domain.

    Try this, IP2Location db1 lite.
    Its free to use and provide you the country of the user based on the IP address. A variety of APIs is also provided.
