The function 'getGeoInformation' retrieves your geometric information (such as latitude and longitude), by automatically tracking down your computer's IP. Additionally you can input a different IP address.

For example

geo = getGeoInformation


IP: ''
country: 'Italy'
region: 'Lazio'
city: 'Rome'
usZIPCode: []
usAreaCode: []
usMetroCode: []
lat: '41.9000'
long: '12.4833'
isp: 'IUnet'
organization: 'IUnet'

I included also some examples of functions that use geometric coordinates. For instance, you can determine the current weather (see Sagar Aiya) or the position of the sun (see Vincent Roy).
