CentOS7 GeoIP Support With BIND

In my new CentOS7 BIND DNS server, I am seeing messages in logwatch about GeoIP.

Something new for me to learn about, and it seems, configure.

Checking to see what packages are available I find:

GeoIP.armv7hl 1.5.0-11.el7 @CentOS-base_rbf GeoIP-data.noarch 1.5.0-11.el7 base GeoIP-devel.armv7hl 1.5.0-11.el7 base GeoIP-update.noarch 1.5.0-11.el7 base

and GeoIP.armv7hl is already installed in my image (even before I
installed BIND, it seems to be part of a base server?).

I am not finding any help for GeoIP on CentOS, but for debian/ubuntu they are saying to install geoip-database. Is GeoIP-data the same thing? What about GeoIP-update?

Basically, I probably should get started on this, or disable it in my DNS server. Can someone point me to CentOS specific help or help me out?

thanks

    This the first hearing of this package,

    geoIP-data is the same as geoIP-database.
