Do you use any other IP Geolocation service provider’s data?

IP Geolocation
BigDataCloud utilizes a proprietary and patent-pending Big Data-driven technology to determine the usage localities of all active IP addresses worldwide. We do not rely on any other IP Geolocation providers' data for anything related to IPv4 address space. However, we are still in the process of developing our approach for the IPv6 address space, and some location data specific to IPv6 address space may include point coordinates from GeoLite2 data created by MaxMind, which is available from their website, https:/www.maxmind.com.
