Project description

Date Location Extractor

date_location_extractor is a date_location extractor that retrieves dates and locations found in a list of strings. The input can either be a json file with a list or you can use a list directly

Install & Setup

Grab the package using pip (this will take a few minutes)

pip install date-location-extractor

Dater Location Extractor uses the following dependencies:

  • datetime
  • dateutil
  • geotext
  • datefinder
  • ast
  • os

Basic Usage

Import the module, give some text or a URL, and presto.

from date_location_extractor import DateLocationExtractor

date_location_extractor = DateLocationExtractor()
print(date_location_extractor.get_date_location_from_json_file("list_to_parse.json", use_simple_parser=True))
  • use_simple_parser does not use datefinder and uses the simple dateutil parser

The result is a list of dictionaries, e.g:

[{"address": "San Juan Costa Rica", "date_iso": "2009-11-27", "ranking": 1.0, "normalized_address": {"City": "San Juan", "Country": "CR"}}]

print(date_location_extractor.get_date_location_from_list_with_parser(["13 May 2009", "12/15/2010"]))
