Entity Description

In Maltego the location entity is officially made up of three fields - city, region and country. The reality is that different transforms provide different levels of accuracy. The IP to location transforms might just give a country while other transforms might give much more detailed information. This makes matching on this entity difficult. In upcoming versions of the tool this entity could be fleshed out some more - e.g. to include long/lat or support physical mailing addresses.
