Abstract: Location-aware applications require a geographic location service of Internet hosts. We focus on a measurement-based service for the geographic location of Internet hosts. Host locations are inferred by comparing delay patterns of geographically distributed landmarks, which are hosts with a known geographic location, with the delay pattern of the target host to be located. Results show a significant correlation between geographic distance and network delay that can be exploited for a coarse-grained geographic location of Internet hosts.},
