This extension is an installer for MaxMind GeoIP Light Country database. It is focused on 3rd party extensions which require Geo Data by IP address.
This extension does not bring any functionality to the web administrator and it's only function is to provide programatical and database interface for Geo Data.
It creates a table #__geodata with IP ranges and country codes. It is optimized to install with ajax and with compatibility in mind.
USAGE from your extensions:
echo 'You are from: '.geoHelper::getCountry();
