* Create assignment objects in ARIN for your longer-prefixes based on
customer and/or region with appropriate geographic info,
* Make sure your forward and reverse DNS are accurate -- I'm told some
geo-location databases look at this if you put geographic info into your
A(AAA) or PTR records, (e.g., blah.raleigh.nc.us.myfavoriteisp.net)
* Reach out to GeoIP DBs like MaxMind, IP2Location, etc. and submit updates.
Unfortunately, you may have to wait several weeks or even a month for
databases to update.
C'est la vie.
