version 2.006002


  use 5.008;
  use GeoIP2::WebService::Client;
  my $client = GeoIP2::WebService::Client->new(
      account_id  => 42,

This class contains the city-level data associated with an IP address.

This record is returned by all the end points except the Country end point.


This class provides the following methods:


This returns a value from 0-100 indicating MaxMind's confidence that the city is correct.

This attribute is only available from the Insights end point and the GeoIP2 Enterprise database.


This returns a "geoname_id" for the city.

This attribute is returned by all end points.


This returns a name for the city. The locale chosen depends on the "locales" argument that was passed to the record's constructor. This will be passed through from the GeoIP2::WebService::Client object you used to fetch the data that populated this record.

If the record does not have a name in any of the locales you asked for, this method returns "undef".

This attribute is returned by all end points.


This returns a hash reference where the keys are locale codes and the values are names. See GeoIP2::WebService::Client for a list of the possible locale codes.

This attribute is returned by all end points.
