How to get postal_code

Hi all
Is there any way to get visitiores ZIp
ip = GeoLocation.find(‘59.180.157.125’) # =>
{:city=>“Liverpool”, :region=>“NY”, :country=>“US”,:latitude=>“43.1059”,
:longitude=>"-76.2099"}
puts ip.inspect
is giving me city country and all there is any way to get zip code
Please suggest thanks in advance

I dont think this is possible, at least in germany one city can have
more
than one postal code. To get the postal code in this cases you need to
have
the street and housenumber to get the right code. I could imagine that
it is
the same in other countries

GeoIP will only ever get you the location of the ISP, not the
subscriber. Every single AOL subscriber seems to be in Hernedon, VA,
USA, for example. Even though their numbers are dropping
precipitously, there’s still not room for all of them there! If you
want a person’s Zip/Postal code, you generally have to ask them, and
make it worth their while (dealer locator widget, etc.).

Yes, it is the same, at least in Argentina and The Netherlands, and
I’d guess in every country. The limitation is given by geocoding the
IP, which is provided by your ISP, so that’s all you can get.
