Django integration for geocoding (using Geocodio)

Project Description

.. image::

Django features for simple geocoding. Current support for the Geocodio geocoding service

Read the full docs on `Read the Docs <>`_.


Install dj-geocoding::

pip install dj-geocoding

Then use it in a project::

import dj-geocoding

Add your geocoding service API credentials to your `` file::



Use the optional model mixin to your model if you aren't using PostGIS::

from dj_geocoding.models import GeoBase

class MyModel(GeoBase, models.Model):

This adds the followng fields::

latitude = models.DecimalField(decimal_places=15, max_digits=18, null=True,
longitude = models.DecimalField(decimal_places=15, max_digits=18, null=True,

Adds a geocode method::

def geocode(self, \*args, \**kwargs):
return geocode()

You should extend this in your model, providing the field(s) from which the
address will be pulled::

def geocode(self):
return super(MyModel, self).geocode('address')

You can choose the separator for providing a single address, too::

def geocode(self):
return super(MyModel, self).geocode('street_address', 'city', 'state',
seperator=", ")

And additional property attributes for the `point` attribute.

Bulk geocoding

The `bulk_geocode` function takes a queryset and geocodes its member objects.

.. note::

The model *must* implement a point-type field that behaves like a
Point field.


geocoded_qs = bulk_geocode(MyModel.objects.all())

Specifying the field name::

geocoded_qs = bulk_geocode(MyModel.objects.all(), field='point')


The manager class implements a subclassed `QuerySet` with a `geocode` method::


This returns a queryset of the objects updated (or not) that fit within the
limits of the geocoding service. It is a convenient interface tot he
`bulk_geocode` function.

Admin site

The `GeocodedFilter` filter can be used to filter locations in the admin based
on whether they have been geolocated or not.

The `GeolocateMixin` class can be added to your `ModelAdmin` definition to add
the `geocode_address` admin action. This adds the "geocode address" action to
the admin actions dropdown menu and then will allow you to geocode an entire
queryset from the admin.
