A tool to detect country from network information.
Wheretero determines the country where the local computer is. This allows automatic keyboard layout configuration for live CDs. Network information is collected from DNS, DHCP, traceroute, GeoIpLookup, and Web IP address services. Information is scored and scaled. Wheretero prints its final decission as a two letter ISO country code, such as fi, de, fr, or us. Secondary choices are printed with probability estimations.
