HDX Python country and exchange rate utilities

Project description

Build Status Coverage Status Code style: black Imports: isort

The HDX Python Country Library provides utilities to map between country and region codes and names, to convert between currencies and to match administrative level one names from different sources.

It provides country mappings including ISO 2 and ISO 3 letter codes (ISO 3166) and regions using live official data from the UN OCHA feed with fallbacks to an internal static file if there is any problem with retrieving data from the url. (Also it is possible to force the use of the internal static files.)

It can exact match English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Arabic. There is a fuzzy matching for English look up that can handle abbreviations in country names like Dem. for Democratic and Rep. for Republic.

Mapping administration level one names from a source to a given base set is also handled including phonetic fuzzy name matching if you are running Python 3.

It also provides currency conversion to USD from local currency.

For more information, please read the documentation.

This library is part of the Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX) project. If you have humanitarian related data, please upload your datasets to HDX.
