Creating Geo Location Data Set

Follow the procedure below in order to create a Geo Location dataset to use when Configuring Geolocation Based Statistics.

  1. Create an account in www.maxmind.com and download the GeoLite2 City: CSV Format as a ZIP file.
  2. Download the geoip-2-csv-converter from https://github.com/maxmind/geoip2-csv-converter/releases according to your operating system.

Prepare the database entries

  1. Unzip the latest CSV file and the geoip-2-csv-converter you have downloaded in the steps above.
  2. Run update-geolocation-data.sh file using the command below.

    For Mac : update-geolocation-data.sh

    For Linux: update-geolocation-data.sh

    sh update-geolocation-data.sh
    • Enter the path to the extracted GeoLite2-City-Blocks-IPv4 directory which you downloaded first, as the response for Enter path to GeoLite2-City-Blocks-IPv4 directory:

      E.g :   /<PATH_TO>/GeoLite2-City-CSV_20200310

    • Enter the path to geoip2-csv-converter directory as the response for Enter path to geoip2-csv-converter home directory:

      E.g :  /<PATH_TO>/geoip2-csv-converter-v1.1.0

    • After executing the script, you will find the final.csv file inside your current directory.

      ** get first column form original
      ** change column name to ‘network_cidr’
      ** Extract ip address data
      ** change column name to ‘network_blocks’
      ** extract entries from original cut: /home/user/xxx/geoip2-csv-converter-v1.1x.0/GeoLite2-City-Blocks-IPv4-converted.csv: No such file or directory
      ** change column name to ‘network’
      ** change column name to ‘broadcast’
      ** merge csv files
  3. The created final.csv file and the GeoLite2-City-Locations-en.csv file (located in the downloaded latest CSV zip file) will be used in the next step.
