GeoLite Legacy Downloadable Databases

As of April 1, 2018, updated versions of the GeoLite Legacy databases will be available to redistribution license customers only, although anyone can continue to download the March 2018 GeoLite Legacy builds. On January 2, 2019, the last build will be removed from our website. GeoLite Legacy database users will need to switch to the GeoLite2 or commercial GeoIP databases and update their integrations by January 2, 2019.

If you are a redistribution license customer, please note that you must download via the account portal or geoipupdate in order to get an updated database.

For more information, please visit our Support Center.

In addition, in 2019, latitude and longitude coordinates in the GeoLite2 databases will be removed.*

* GeoLite2 databases are free IP geolocation databases comparable to, but less accurate than, MaxMind’s GeoIP2 databases. Latitude and longitude coordinates will continue to be provided in GeoIP2 databases. Please check back for updates.

New Database Format Available: This page is for our legacy databases. For our latest database format, please see our GeoLite2 Databases.


IP Geolocation

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.

Autonomous System Numbers

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.
