Python Geocoding Toolbox

Project description

© GeoPy Project and individual contributors, MIT License

geopy is a Python client for several popular geocoding web services.

geopy makes it easy for Python developers to locate the coordinates of addresses, cities, countries, and landmarks across the globe using third-party geocoders and other data sources.

geopy includes geocoder classes for the Google Geocoding API (V3), the Yahoo! BOSS geocoder, geocoder.us, Bing Maps API, and several more Geocoder API services. The various geocoder classes are located in geopy.geocoders.

Installation

Using pip:

pip install geopy

Or, manually: Download the tarball from PyPI, unzip, and execute this in the same directory:

python setup.py install

Usage

To geolocate a query to an address and coordinates:

>>> from geopy.geocoders import GoogleV3
>>> geolocator = GoogleV3()
>>> address, (latitude, longitude) = geolocator.geocode("175 5th Avenue NYC")
>>> print address, latitude, longitude
175 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10010, USA 40.7410262 -73.9897806

To find the address corresponding to a set of coordinates:

>>> from geopy.geocoders import GoogleV3
>>> geolocator = GoogleV3()
>>> address, (latitude, longitude) = geolocator.reverse("40.752067, -73.977578")
>>> print address, latitude, longitude
77 East 42nd Street, New York, NY 10017, USA 40.7520802 -73.9775683
