# Basic Usage
If you want to know where your visitors are coming from, you can perform a geolocation lookup based on each user's IP address...
It will return the geolocation results as a Visitor Model. For the full details regarding the
getVisitor method, see the advanced geolocation documentation.
This method relies on deducing the location based on a user's IP address. Please be aware, this will rarely be 100% accurate. Generally speaking, you will end up with results that are within a few miles of a visitor's actual location.
# Third-Party Services
If you'd like to use the visitor geolocation feature, you will also need to subscribe to a third-party service. See more about the available geolocation service providers...
