query zip codes and location data

Project description

Introduction

This package will allow you to get zip code information. The data used in this package is retrieved from http://pablotron.org/files/zipcodes-csv-10-Aug-2004.zip

pyzipcode uses a local sqlite database to run. You can replace it with your own other storage mechanism with a little effort.

Here is some basic usage..

>>> from pyzipcode import ZipCodeDatabase
>>> zcdb = ZipCodeDatabase()
>>> zipcode = zcdb[54115]
>>> zipcode.zip
u'54115'
>>> zipcode.city
u'De Pere'
>>> zipcode.state
u'WI'
>>> zipcode.longitude
-88.078959999999995
>>> zipcode.latitude
44.42042
>>> zipcode.timezone
-6

Search zip codes…

>>> from pyzipcode import ZipCodeDatabase
>>> zcdb = ZipCodeDatabase()
>>> len(zcdb.find_zip(city="Oshkosh"))
7

Get a list of zipcodes around a radius of a zipcode

>>> from pyzipcode import ZipCodeDatabase
>>> zcdb = ZipCodeDatabase()
>>> [z.zip for z in zcdb.get_zipcodes_around_radius('54901', 10)]
[u'54901', u'54902', u'54903', u'54904', u'54906', u'54927', u'54952', u'54956', u'54957', u'54979', u'54985']

ChangeLog

1.0 (2016-01-20)

  • Fix import code so that it is not run when the module is imported (for example, when building Sphinx API Documentation).
  • Rename the import.py module to import_zipcode.py because import is a reserved Python keyword.
  • Document the import_zipcode module.

0.4

0.3

  • use strings instead of integer for storing zip codes since zip codes can start with a Zero.

0.2

  • catch sqlite db file reading errors and keep trying in case another process is trying to access the file at the same time.

0.1

  • initial release
