  author={Brian Eriksson and Bruce M. Maggs},
Location-specific Internet services are predicated on the ability to identify the geographic position of IP hosts accurately. Fundamental to prior geolocation techniques is their reliance on landmarks with known coordinates whose distance from target hosts is intrinsically tied to the ability to make accurate location estimates. In this paper, we introduce a new lightweight framework for IP geolocation that we call Posit. The Posit framework geolocates by automatically adapting to the… CONTINUE READING
