This file is an example PHP file of the geoplugin class
to geolocate IP addresses using the free PHP Webservices of



$geoplugin = new geoPlugin();


The default base currency is USD (see http://www.geoplugin.com/webservices:currency ).
You can change this before the call to geoPlugin::locate with eg:
$geoplugin->currency = 'EUR';

The default IP to lookup is $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']
You can lookup a specific IP address, by entering the IP in the call to geoPlugin::locate


//locate the IP

echo "Geolocation results for {$geoplugin->ip}: <br />\n".
	"City: {$geoplugin->city} <br />\n".
	"Region: {$geoplugin->region} <br />\n".
	"Area Code: {$geoplugin->areaCode} <br />\n".
	"DMA Code: {$geoplugin->dmaCode} <br />\n".
	"Country Name: {$geoplugin->countryName} <br />\n".
	"Country Code: {$geoplugin->countryCode} <br />\n".
	"Longitude: {$geoplugin->longitude} <br />\n".
	"Latitude: {$geoplugin->latitude} <br />\n".
	"Currency Code: {$geoplugin->currencyCode} <br />\n".
	"Currency Symbol: {$geoplugin->currencySymbol} <br />\n".
	"Exchange Rate: {$geoplugin->currencyConverter} <br />\n";

How to use the in-built currency converter
geoPlugin::convert accepts 3 parameters
$amount - amount to convert (required)
$float - the number of decimal places to round to (default: 2)
$symbol - whether to display the geolocated currency symbol in the output (default: true)
if ( $geoplugin->currency != $geoplugin->currencyCode ) {
	//our visitor is not using the same currency as the base currency
	echo "<p>At todays rate, US$100 will cost you " . $geoplugin->convert(100) ." </p>\n";

/* Finding places nearby 
nearby($radius, $maxresults)
$radius (optional: default 10)
$maxresults (optional: default 5)
$nearby = $geoplugin->nearby();

if ( isset($nearby[0]['geoplugin_place']) ) {

	echo "<pre><p>Some places you may wish to visit near " . $geoplugin->city . ": </p>\n";

	foreach ( $nearby as $key => $array ) {
		echo ($key + 1) .":<br />";
		echo "\t Place: " . $array['geoplugin_place'] . "<br />";
		echo "\t Region: " . $array['geoplugin_region'] . "<br />";
		echo "\t Latitude: " . $array['geoplugin_latitude'] . "<br />";
		echo "\t Longitude: " . $array['geoplugin_longitude'] . "<br />";
	echo "</pre>\n";
