A Python port of the `parse-address` npm library

Project description

Addresser parses and normalizes street addresses and intersections. It is a port of the Node package, parse-address, which in turn is a port of the PERL package, Geo::StreetAddress::US.

From the Geo::StreetAddress::US description:

Geo::StreetAddress::US is a regex-based street address and street intersection parser for the United States. Its basic goal is to be as forgiving as possible when parsing user-provided address strings. Geo::StreetAddress::US knows about directional prefixes and suffixes, fractional building numbers, building units, grid-based addresses (such as those used in parts of Utah), 5 and 9 digit ZIP codes, and all of the official USPS abbreviations for street types and state names…


Addresser can be installed from pip:

$ pip install addresser


from addresser import parse_location

parse_location('1005 N Gravenstein Highway Sebastopol CA 95472')


    'number': '1005',
    'prefix': 'N',
    'street': 'Gravenstein',
    'type': 'Hwy',
    'city': 'Sebastopol',
    'state': 'CA',
    'zip': '95472'
