A search using the Map filter is very powerful because it allows you to visually pinpoint an online asset's/element's geolocation(s), address, city, country, and other details.
This simple workflow example, allows to use the Map filter to view where an IP address' geolocation is.
1. To get started, type an element in the search box, then press Enter.
2. After a few seconds, a page will load with a list of results, along with a Heat Map. You can switch the map to a Pin Map if you wish.
The map shows the location or possible location of the IP address. You can also use the filters on the left panel to narrow down your search even more.
When you click on items on the results list they will open on the Element Details page which provides you with Ownership information, Collections that contain the element, DNS History, and sections such as:
Host Enumeration - Shodan information of the element's network ports with their services, plus details about the entity that owns or owned the element.
Location - A version of the map that shows an wider area of the state or country where the element is or was registered. Plus, relevant WHOIS details.
Hashes - If a malicious file (e.g., malware, spyware, a worm, trojan, etc.) is associated with the element, it will list its hash here. You can look up the hash on a website such as VirusTotal to tell you what the malicious file is and what it does.
Notes - Here you can view notes others or you have created about this Map search result. You can also add a new one by clicking the **+** icon on the section's top right corner.
Map Search: Actions
Near the top of the left side corner is the Actions drop-down menu. Here you can select to Export the element details about this Vulnerability as a report.
You can also add the element to a collection by selecting Add to Collection.
And, you can Add/Edit Labels which is like adding tags that can help you keep track of items you'd like to revisit.
To do this, click on Add/Edit Labels and assign it a unique label name, then press Save. To view this item again in the future, all you need to do is type in the label in the search box.
