There are modules out there for doing IP2LL

http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/~olson/IPtoLL.html/ and
http://www.caida.org/tools/utilities/netgeo/ 

But it just isn't all guaranteed to be accurate for various reasons.
Getting, say 70% accuracy isn't taht hard, the next 20% is very hard,
the next 10% after that is nigh on impossible.

It's not out of date. It's generated whenever there is an update to the
modlist since it is just another representation of that list. If your
modules aren't in the list then you need to submit it to Andreas.
