IP number locating...sites..the most accurate and the sites with maps

I've recently been interested in tracking IP numbers that show up on my web site and from the various spammers who constantly e-mail my site mail adress.

I've found a number of sites that include maps with the info. What exactly do the locations on these maps signify? Is it the corporate office of the companies providing internet service?

Some of them say its the physical location of the computer that the number is assigned to. Im not sure i believe that...sort of creepy.

Anyone have any input as to the best and most accurate sites for IP info? Sometimes, with a particular, few numbers, I get info saying it is from Arizona...Then, on another site, it indicates that the same number is coming from Atlanta, Georgia (COX comunications) Im guessing that one of those hits is the corporate office and is an error, or inaccuracy of sorts.

When I input my own IP number the location, on the sites that provide maps, is damn close to my house...about two miles off, but fairly close on a large city scale.

Any info would be appreciated because i want to go to some of these peoples houses and knock down the jockeys and the green ornaments on pedestals that they have on their front lawns. I'd hate to end up at an inncoent person's jockey.

It can be the number of the computer. It really varies.

After having my old IP for 3 years it did eventually say "Boulder, Colorado".

My new IP which I have had for about 4 months however still says "*,Indiana". It can vary.

Security is just a word. The act of being secure is entirely different.

Just because it has two clutches, shifts faster, uses a torque converter or has near-infinite gear ratios, requires less driver intervention and is more efficient doesn't make it better in my opinion.
