Geolocation in Latvia

  • Problem
  • Updated 4 years ago
Hi,
we are going to use wunderground API for weather in Latvia using the geolocation. When we make the following request:
http://api.wunderground.com/api/8505e...
it shows us display location Sigulda, but the IP address is based in VENTSPILS, which is about 250 km far from Sigulda. IPInfoDB.com geolocation service shows correct location for that IP address.
Can this problem be fixed? We are considering buying wunderground Shower licence, but it depends on correct working of geolocation for Latvia.

Best Regards,
Daniel Matteoni

Hi Daniel,

I'm updating the GeoIp database as we speak, you should see the change in an hour or so.

Thanks for the feedback

Hi Tim,

thank you for update.
The geolocation works now, for the IP address in Ventspils, but we still have a problem with following IP address:
85.254.196.4
http://api.wunderground.com/api/8505e...
shows Sigulda, but this IP address is based in DAUGAVPILS - about 200 km far from Sigulda. IPInfoDB.com shows it correctly.

Could this also be fixed please?
Best Regards,
Daniel Matteoni
