Can this be used to display banners country wide or state wide?
Many Indian Wikipedian users don't even know about the existance of regional
language Wikipedias. So, if we can display a banner at the top giving links
to regional Wikipedias, it will greatly boost the awareness about them.
Sites like WordPress.com
do this already.

we're experimenting with geolocation tools. For the purpose of
supporting the coordination of meetups and events, we want to add
functionality that will make it easy to run banners in a particular
region (e.g. a city and surrounding area).
To do so, we need to license a database that will allow us to look up
a person's presumed location based on their IP address. Before we do
so, we want to gather some reports from around the world about the
quality of the information provided.
