Maybe geo-location would not be so great
because two networks in the same physical
area might have relatively poor connectivity
to each other.

Aggregated IP block might be the ticket.
CIDR-Report has both actual and suggested
netblock aggregations.


Shows 562259 reduced to 253420 advertisements.
Perhaps too fine-grained, but 250k is not
so much bigger than the 45k ASN count.

Idea is to anchor metrics to maximum
size BGP routable blocks, which ought to
correlate performance-wise down to all
the IPs in each block.
