How to figure out the closest server to the user's location?

Recommended Posts

How would one get the closest server to the user in HTML? For example, given three servers, US East, US West and Europe, if someone was in the UK, how would the server or client figure this out and "route" them to the EU server? (It doesn't need to actually route, I just need some variable e.g: bestServer = 'EU'). Also it doesn't have to be the closest server, it should be the one that gives the player the best performance.

I am also using Node.js on my backend.
