Does an internet map exist that shows the physical location of IP address?

I was wondering if a table of ip addresses and their physical (general of course) exists.

For example, If someone from 216.243.32.345 attempts to access my website, I can grab that IP address, however how can I check to see what country this is most likely from?

I understand I can do a reverse look up, however this isn't an exact solution.

Thanks.

Please note the accuracy of all these services vary from IP to IP.  Sometimes it's so accurate that it feels scary.  But in some other times it may point to somewhere that a few hours flight away.  So don't bet your house on it. :)
