The NetGeo parser extracted and stored the following location information. The output is from MySQL, the relational database used in NetGeo (some internal fields not shown).

name city state country latitude longitude
CAIDA.ORG LA JOLLA CALIFORNIA US 32.85 -117.25


latlongloc nic lastUpdated
C I 11-Jul-98


As the table shows the city, state, and country were correctly parsed from the address. The 'C' value in the latlongloc field indicates the latitude/longitude values were found by a lookup of the city (as opposed to a generic pair of values associated with a state or country). In this example the zip code was not used because 92093 wasn't found in the NetGeo tables. The 'I' value for the nic field indicates the whois record was supplied by InterNIC.
