You should not need to call getIP, it looks like it is a callback and so api.ipify.org will call it.

You want the IP address to appear on the page? Try this:
<!DOCTYPE html>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
    <title></title>
    <!-- START: Here's the IP stuff -->
    <script type="application/javascript">
        function getIP(json) {
            document.write("My public IP address is: " + json.ip);
        }
    </script>
    <!-- END: IP Stuff -->
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1">
    <div>
        <map name="planetmap">
            <area shape="rect" coords="0,388 185,429" alt="Chino, CA" target="_blank" href="http://www.gdfg.biz/ClickRecoder.aspx?rentalLocation=SMC-Chino&URL=http://www.sharsdfgfd.com?ip=">
        </map>
    </div>
    </form>
    <p>
    <!-- START: More IP stuff -->
    <script type="application/javascript"
        src="http://api.ipify.org?format=jsonp&callback=getIP">
    </script>
    <!-- END: more IP stuff -->
    </p>
</body>
</html>

if you are using jquery in your project, it is easy

function getIP(json) {
    $("area").attr("href","http://www.gdfg.biz/ClickRecoder.aspx?rentalLocation=SMC-Chino&URL=http://www.sharsdfgfd.com?ip=" + json.ip);
}

It can be done in plain javascript but is a bit more complicated, let me know if you need that.

<map name="planetmap">
     <area shape="rect" coords="0,388 185,429" alt="Chino, CA" target="_blank" href="http://www.gdfg.biz/ClickRecoder.aspx?rentalLocation=SMC-Chino&URL=http://www.sharsdfgfd.com?ip=">
