Is there a way we can communicate with Tridion to see where a visitor is connecting from?

The idea is a user visits a page, then determines their location and based on their location then perform the appropriate action.

    Morning Michael. There is no GEO Location service built-in with Tridion, but you can integrate with an external, 3rd party service within the web application code. The following question by Alvin (and the answers) may help you: tridion.stackexchange.com/q/3251/71 – Jonathan Williams Jun 21 '18 at 8:09
  • That sounds like an Answer. – Rick Pannekoek Jun 21 '18 at 8:22
  • Go on then. You've twisted my arm! ;) – Jonathan Williams Jun 21 '18 at 10:22
  • Out-of-curiosity, is this for a privacy requirement, perhaps? Or is it more for a personalization scenario? – Alvin Reyes Jun 21 '18 at 19:15

The following question by Alvin (and the answers) may help you: Geolocation options for content delivery. Pankaj gives a couple of examples of 3rd party GEO Location services that you could use in his answer.

    Also read @JanH's answer in that post. I'd recommend the Ambient Data Framework with a 3rd-party GEO-IP lookup if you want to integrate a few pieces of explicit and implicit user data with other Tridion features. Otherwise application-specific code might be a simpler approach. – Alvin Reyes Jun 21 '18 at 19:20
