It comes with many GeoIP adapters, which could directly be used by Piwik instead of the custom implementation: https://github.com/piwik/piwik/blob/master/plugins/UserCountry/LocationProvider/GeoIp.php
If a replacement would happen, this would be a good point that the administration GUI is also changed, to list all available GeoIP sources and order them by priority. (see using
Using The ChainProvider)
I created a prototype to replace the current
UserCountry or as a seperate plugin...needs to be decided later...
Please provide some feedback here, or at the repo...thx :smile:
+1 for the idea to improve geolocation. I like the idea of using kind of detection chain to improve results.
@sgiehl it's also required if you want to easily track and geolocate intranet and internet traffic at the same time.
Currently u could use the builtin plugin + https://github.com/ThaDafinser/Piwik-IntranetGeoIP but it's not so easy for enduser
