Mashup GoogleMaps and GeoIP

Ok I have put together a small example of how to use GoogleMaps and GeoIP. Use it to look up where a specific URL or server is hosted.

You can view it here. The application includes a bookmarklet, which you may bookmark or place in the link's bar of your browser to use it from every website to determine it's location.

For all you PHP freaks, you can download the complete example as well. Just unpack the ZIP file on your PHP5-enabled server and you should be good to go. Just make sure to use your own GoogleMaps API key, you can get here.
