What source database is being used? Is it available via XML?

Is the geolocation source database being used here proprietary to whatismyipaddress.com or is is referencing some other widely used service? Is it possible to access via a web service providing XML or JSON for use by web developers? The reason I am asking is that although there are several services out there none of them are returning accurate information for my location except for yours. It would be nice if it were available to developers for use in their web apps/sites.

Thanks!

Sorry, no API.

We use a mix of geolocation providers. See http://whatismyipaddress.com/geolocation-providers
