Project description


pysxgeo is an API that provides access to Sypex Geo (2.2) databases (country and city). The databases provides an information about geolocation by ip-address. For information about databases please visit


Python 3.x

Sypex Geo City (or Country) database


$ pip install pysxgeo


Some examples:

>>> from pysxgeo import sxgeo
>>> ip = ''
>>> db = '/path/to/db' # City or Country
>>> info = sxgeo.SxGeo(db_file=db, mode=sxgeo.SXGEO_BATCH)
>>> info.get_city(ip, full=True)
{'country': {'id': 56, 'lon': 10.5, 'lat': 51.5,
             'name_en': 'Germany', 'iso': 'DE', 'name_ru': 'Германия'},
 'region': {'id': 2861876, 'iso': 'DE-NW',
            'name_en': 'Land Nordrhein-Westfalen',
            'name_ru': 'Северный Рейн-Вестфалия'},
 'city': {'id': 2831105, 'lon': 6.36667, 'name_ru': 'Sonsbeck',
          'name_en': 'Sonsbeck', 'lat': 51.61667}}
>>> info.get_country(ip)
>>> info.get_country_id(ip)
>>> # Quick usage. The answer depends of your database choice.
>>> info.get(ip)
{'city': {'name_en': 'Sonsbeck', 'lon': 6.36667,
      'name_ru': 'Sonsbeck', 'id': 2831105, 'lat': 51.61667},
 'country': {'iso': 'DE', 'id': 56}},
>>> # Get coordinates tuple(latitude, longitude)
>>> info.get_coords() # For the last ip
(51.61667, 6.36667)
>>> info.get_coords(ip) # For the new ip
(51.61667, 6.36667)
>>> # Get db info:
>>> info.about()


Processing of the DB with charset ‘utf-8’ is faster than processing DB with charset ‘cp1251’.
