I'm building an app that will use Geo Location. Ideally, when a user visits my website my goal is to deliver information based on the users IP address, if possible at a city level. But is there a way to get more accurate than this? ZIP code, or street level? What would be the best gems for this feature?
Thanks for any input

Geo location via IP address is highly inaccurate.
In many cases, you will get the location of the ISP that originally purchased the IP address, rather than the business or resident who is leasing it.
