Country('Ivory Coast')
>>> Country('côte d’ivoire')
Country('Ivory Coast')
>>> Country('civ')
Country('Ivory Coast')
>>> _.iso
>>> Country('ivory coast')
>>> Country('ivory coast').neighbors
[Country('Liberia'), Country('Ghana'), Country('Guinea'), Country('Burkina Faso'), Country('Mali')]
>>> Country('us').cities['moscow']
City.gid(5601538, 'Moscow', 'US')
>>> Country('us').cities['moscow'].admin2
State.gid(5598264, 'ADM2', 'Latah County', 'US')
>>> Country('us').cities['moscow'].admin1
State.gid(5596512, 'ADM1', 'Idaho', 'US')
>>> Country('us').cities['moscow'].distance_to(Country('ru').cities['moscow'])
>>> find_cities("oslo")[:2]
[City.gid(3143244, 'Oslo', 'NO'), City.gid(5040425, 'Oslo', 'US')]


  • Determine if a (city, state and country) combination corresponds to an existing place name

  • Scrub (city, state, country) combinations

  • Normalize city, state and country names to their canonical representations

  • Frame queries in English as well as languages native to each particular country
