Geography based on IP Address

Hello Experts!

How do I find a user's located based on their IP Address? I've seen some very cool things and I hear it's a set of web standards. What are these web standards and where can I find out more about them? Thank you!

What about actual location? It seems these are based on city and country databases. I would like to know how a website like fct.me gets the location of the user.
Because mobile devices with GPS can provide it to the page, so it uses GPS position.
And if not, it's based on ip address using GeoIp or such service. You can use advanced GeoIP, but you need to pay for it.
