SANS IP data inconsistency
My Azure VM in the WestUS2 data center (Washington State) was recently assigned an IP address of This showed up in my flow reports as Country=GB. Delving further into it I found a discrepancy between two SANS utilities I often use.

IP Info - Shows Country=GB [0].
WhereIs [IP] - Shows Country=US [1].

FWIW, APNIC [2] shows Country=GB while Maxmind [3] shows Country=US.
