Extract countries, regions and cities from a URL or text

Project description

Extract place names from a URL or text, and add context to those names – for example distinguishing between a country, region or city.

## Install & Setup

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

pip install geograpy2

Geograpy2 uses [NLTK](http://www.nltk.org/) for entity recognition, so you’ll also need to download the models we’re using. Fortunately there’s a command that’ll take care of this for you.

geograpy-nltk

## Basic Usage

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

import geograpy2 url = ‘http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-26919928’ places = geograpy2.get_place_context(url=url)

Geograpy2 uses the following excellent libraries:

Geograpy uses the following data sources:

Hat tip to [Chris Albon](https://github.com/chrisalbon) for the name.
