I'm currently looking for ways to automatically identifying my website's visitor's country location through their originating IP address using JavaScript/jQuery.  I'm sure there is a way but I'm not sure how.

Just create a php file with the following code:

echo ' [ { "ip" : "$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']" } ]';

and then ping that with get JSON

Hi

You could make use of the geoplugin api.

http://www.geoplugin.com/quickstart#how_to_geo-localize_your_visitors

For instance

http://www.geoplugin.net/json.gp?ip=<your ip here>&jsoncallback=<suitable javascript function in your source>

I don't think you can do it with just JavaScript/jQuery.  Here's an API I use with PHP on several sites.  http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geolite

It looks like they do have a javascript based service.  http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/javascript
