Every once in a while, you want to be able to locate a real spot somewhere on the face of the planet.
Pipeworks includes a cool cmdlert for just this purpose: Resolve-Location.
Resolve-Location uses two public web services to do GeoLocation, FreeGeoIP.net
The first works off of IP addresses, and the second works only for US addresses.
Both resolve a location to a http://schema.org/Place
. When you view a Place inside of a web page, it will automatically embed a map.
This first example will map an IP.
