We study the problem of determining the geographic location of an Internet host knowing only its IP address. We have developed three distinct techniques, GeoTrack}, GeoPing, and GeoCluster, to address this problem. These techniques exploit information derived from the DNS, network delay measurements, and inter-domain routing. We have evaluated our techniques using extensive and varied datasets.
