Visitor Maps Geolocation Addon - Wordpress Plugin by Mike Challis

Visitor Maps Geolocation Addon
This plugin adds the Geolocation and Maps feature to the WordPress "Visitor Maps" plugin version 1.5.8.9 or higher. To install, go to your WordPress admin page for Plugins, then click 'Add New', then on the 'Add Plugins' page, click the "Upload Plugin" button, select the visitor-maps-geoip.zip you previously downloaded, then click "Install Now". Or you can just unzip and FTP upload the /visitor-maps-geoip/ folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.

After installation be sure to activate the plugin. Next, go to the Visitor Maps Options menu to click to "Install" the Maxmind GeoLite City Database, then click "Enable Geolocation" and click Update Options.

Description:
This addon is required before you can enable the Geolocation features in Visitor Maps Wordpress Plugin. After installing this plugin, go to the Visitor Maps Options menu to click to "Install" the Maxmind GeoLite City Database, then click "Enable Geolocation" and click Update Options.

Notice: 08/31/2015 - Why is the "Visitor Maps Geolocation Addon" now required for Geolocation?
It used to be included until WordPress Administrators notified me that the Creative Commons License for the Maxmind GeoLite City Database is not compatible with the WordPress GPL License. Even though they are both free. Because of the license conflict, they said I would have to remove the Maxmind GeoLite City Database installer/updater feature from the version hosted on the WP site.

The solution was to make the Maxmind GeoLite City Database a separate plugin called "Visitor Maps Geolocation Addon". (download link below). When the addon plugin is installed with version 1.5.8.9 or higher of Visitor Maps, Visitor Maps functions exactly the same way it did before, with a button to update the database automatically each month.

After the Visitor Maps Geolocation Addon installation be sure to activate the plugin. Next, go to the Visitor Maps Options menu to click to "Install" the Maxmind GeoLite City Database, then click "Enable Geolocation" and click Update Options.
