We hosted a RIPE NCC Open House for anyone interested in RIPE IPmap, the RIPE NCC's API for getting geolocation data for core Internet infrastructure.

RIPE IPmap uses various techniques and datasets to guess the locations of Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), transit providers, routers, and other forms of core infrastructure. It is built collaboratively with academics to provide developers, operators and researchers with a good degree of accuracy and completeness of geolocation results.

The Open House was a sixty-minute remote session where RIPE NCC staff and community members met up and discussed the state of geolocation for Internet infrastructure, the current features of RIPE IPmap, and the future direction of the service.
