The IPLookup transformation takes IP geo-location or IP geo-intelligence data (provided by any vendor of such data and converted into a proprietary format by Adobe) and transforms the data into geographical information that can be used in analysis.
Two IPLookup transformations are listed in the Add new > *Transformation type *menu:
IPLookup Quova for IP geo-location data
IPLookup Digital Envoy for IP geo-intelligence data
When defining an IPLookup transformation, choose the appropriate transformation for your IP geo-location or IP geo-intelligence data.
|Name||Descriptive name of the transformation. You can enter any name here.|
|Comments||Optional. Notes about the transformation.|
|Condition||The conditions under which this transformation is applied.|

The names of the output strings.
The IPLookup Quova and IPLookup Digital Envoy transformations have different output parameters. Be sure to use the appropriate transformation for your IP lookup data.
In this example, IP geo-location data (in the lookup file Quova.bin) is used to create the output fields listed. The outputs (AOL, ASN, Area Code, and so on) can be used to create dimensions for geographical analysis of visitor traffic.
