Tag the names of countries and in text.
This library finds the names of places in a string of text and tries to associate them with countries. The goal is to tag a piece (or set) of text with country metadata. The place names are derived from the GeoNames database, and they include names of countries, major administrative areas and large cities. Place names that are used in several countries are not used.
import countrytagger # match in a string using sequential matching: text = 'I am in Berlin' for (code, score, country) in countrytagger.tag_text_countries(text): print(score, country) # find precise matches: code, score, country = countrytagger.tag_place('Berlin')
Building the data
You can re-generate the place database like this:
$ make generate
This will download GeoNames and parse it into the format used by this library.
