IP Detection & Location

Hello Experts

I'mm building a site that will offer services in several cities and I'm looking for any ideas on how can i detect the visitor's ip address (as many sites doo), figure its location and durect  them to the nearest city available.

Partially this would be like www.whatismyip.com and i think its fairly easy to capture the ip address?

Secondly, how do i determine the location of a ip? is there a formula or database?.

And finally, how would i find the closest city available - would i use somehow a GPS system, or lattitude/langitude, etc?

any ideas will be truly appreciated.

if you are developing in asp.net you can use the free control of subgurim, here is an example to ip locate on map:
