New Database Format Available: This page is for our legacy databases. For our latest database format, please see our GeoLite2 Databases.
The GeoLite databases are our free IP geolocation databases. They are updated on the first Tuesday of each month. These databases are offered in the same binary and csv formats as our subscription databases. Any code which can read the subscription databases can also read the GeoLite databases.
IP geolocation is inherently imprecise. Locations are often near the center of the population. Any location provided by a GeoIP database should not be used to identify a particular address or household.
We publish accuracy statistics for GeoLite City.
We offer free databases that map IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to Autonomous System Numbers (ASN), including the names of each Autonomous System. The databases are updated every month.
MaxMind does not provide customer support for free GeoLite databases. If you have questions on how to use these databases, we suggest asking on Stack Overflow.
