This is a Python wrapper for Google Geocoding API V3

It allows you to directly convert an address to coordinates or vice versa. It also allows you to validate, format and split addresses into civic number, street name, city etc.


It has dependency on the json module, included with Python versions 2.6 and later and available for download as simplejson for earlier versions. functools is needed and included in Python 2.5. Requirement for hmac is included with Python 2.2. hashlib depends on Python 2.5. base64 depends on Python 2.4.

requests library is needed and installed by setuptools.

It is developed on Python 2.7 but should work on earlier versions. It is also compatible with Python 3.

You can install this package using pip:

pip install pygeocoder
