Reverse Geocode

Reverse Geocode takes a latitude / longitude coordinate and returns the country and city. Example usage:

>>> import reverse_geocode
>>> coordinates = (-37.81, 144.96), (31.76, 35.21)
>>> reverse_geocode.search(coordinates)
[{'city': 'Melbourne', 'code': 'AU', 'country': 'Australia'},
 {'city': 'Jerusalem', 'code': 'IL', 'country': 'Israel'}]

The module has a set of known geocoded locations and uses a k-d tree to efficiently find the nearest neighbour. This can be useful when you need to reverse geocode a large number of coordinates so a web API is not practical.

Install

Supports python 2 & 3:

pip install reverse-geocode
pip3 install reverse-geocode
