GeoLite2 Free Downloadable Databases


GeoLite2 databases are free IP geolocation databases comparable to, but less accurate than, MaxMind’s GeoIP2 databases. GeoLite2 databases are updated on the first Tuesday of each month.

IP Geolocation Usage

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.

Use the Accuracy Radius as an indication of geolocation accuracy for the latitude and longitude coordinates we return for an IP address. The actual location of the IP address is likely within the area defined by this radius and the latitude and longitude coordinates.


MaxMind does not provide official support for the free GeoLite2 databases. If you have questions about the GeoLite2 databases or GeoIP2 APIs, please see stackoverflow’s GeoIP questions and answers.

Note: The GeoLite2 City database now includes Accuracy Radius data. For the GeoLite2 City CSV database, a new accuracy_radius column will be appended to the IPv4 and IPv6 blocks files. Please test your integration to ensure compatibility before updating the GeoLite2 City CSV database.
