This is the holy grail of Advertising Knowledge on the Internet, is
non-trivial*, and many people claim to have the answer.

*Most ISPs have large nets (/8, /16) and assign randomly (and change
*AOL (12 egress points for their entire 40M user base, no mapping).

Many have tried to map the net (I believe MERIT has links) with nothing
better than 50% relevance at the time of the mapping effort. As we all
know things change.

There is a group who believe there is a solution ;-)
