Get Country,City and other key information based on IP address

Did you ever feel a need to know more information or to trace an IP,like who owns it,from where this IP originated,which country,state etc. Even I had a similar requirement and I got a hand on this on-line utility
http://www.maxmind.com/app/locate_ip
Just type www.google.co.in and click on 'Locate IP' and see how much information you get.But there is a limit of max 25 requests per day, alternatively they offer a test account http://www.maxmind.com/app/demo_request?type=city to over come the above limit.
Apart from this there are plenty of other free and OpenSource utilities

They also offer API (with limited features) in several languages

The product is also offered as web service

They seem to also offer CredirCard fraud API's and products

Enjoy.
