Calculate distances between 2 addresses, Distances Calculator is based on open street map api.

Project description

Distances Calculator

This is a distance calculator between 2 addressed, it is based on openstreetmap api.

Getting start

  • install, pip install distances-calculator
  • uninstall pip uninstall distances-calculator

get distance between 2 addresses

2 parameters,

  • address 1
  • address 2
distances-calc "125 Queen St, Auckland, 0620" "127 Queen St, Auckland, 0620"

calculate the distance between a table's data

2 parameters,

  • address, the center, the original address
  • path, the absolute path of your csv file
distances_writer "125 Queen St, Auckland, 0620" "/home/Username/test.csv"

example of distance_writer

table test.csv

id address
0 1 Fontenoy Street, Mount Albert, Auckland 1025
1 3A Fontenoy Street, Mount Albert, Auckland 1025

after running distances_writer "125 Queen St, Auckland, 0620" "/home/Username/test.csv"

new table test.csv will be

id address distance_to_139 Carrington Rd, Mount Albert, Auckland 1025
0 1 Fontenoy Street, Mount Albert, Auckland 1025 0.447789551786935
1 3A Fontenoy Street, Mount Albert, Auckland 1025 0.471488332032505


in your csv table, there should be one column named address, and the writer can create a new column named distance_to_<address>

How to calculate distance

Based on coordinate

Earth is a sphere, so we can use simple triangle function to calculate a not accurate distance, but most of time, this direct distance is good enough.

Based on open street map api (in future)

this can be used to calculate route distance.


  • extract_coordinate
  • get_distance
  • write_into
