Is it possible to correct my GeoIP location

Numerous services and advertising do GeoIP lookups. They get the country correct, but often the city is wrong. Are there places where I can go and correct this, letting people know the actual location of my IP address. I have a static IP, so it's not going to go to another user in a different location.

No. Your location is probably determined by doing a WhoIs query against your IP block. Whatever address is listed as owning that IP block is where they are probably getting your "estimated" geographical information.
