About

Python-Geocoder is a simple library that uses Google Maps API for geocoding.

Usage

As python library:

>>> from geocode.google import GoogleGeocoderClient

>>> geocoder = GoogleGeocoderClient(False) # must specify sensor parameter explicitely
>>> result = geocoder.geocode("massasauga park")

>>> result.is_success()
True

>>> len(result)
3

# by default all get_*() methods will fetch the first result:
>>> result.get_formatted_address()
u'The Massasauga Provincial Park, The Archipelago, ON, Canada'

# but you can also pass it an index parameter:
>>> result.get_formatted_address(2)
u'Massasauga Prairie Nature Preserve, Roseville, IL 61417, USA'

>>> result.get_location()
(Decimal('45.19526590'), Decimal('-80.05372229999999'))

>>> result.get_location_type()
u'APPROXIMATE'

# each result object is an iterator containing nested dictionaries according to
# Google geocoding specifications (http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/geocoding/)
>>> for r in result: print r["formatted_address"]
The Massasauga Provincial Park, The Archipelago, ON, Canada
The Massasauga Provincial Park, RR 2, Parry Sound, ON P0G, Canada
Massasauga Prairie Nature Preserve, Berwick, IL 61417, USA

If you are using Google Maps API for business pass your key and client id when initializing GoogleGeocoderClient:

>>> geocoder = GoogleGeocoderClient(False, my_client_id, my_key)

geocode/google-geocoder.py is a command line tool. A sample usage:

$ python geocode/google.py -a "massasauga park"
The Massasauga Provincial Park, The Archipelago, ON, Canada (45.19526590, -80.05372229999999) - APPROXIMATE
The Massasauga Provincial Park, RR 2, Parry Sound, ON P0G, Canada (45.1969970, -80.0398220) - APPROXIMATE
Massasauga Prairie Nature Preserve, Roseville, IL 61417, USA (40.76002530, -90.57780330) - APPROXIMATE
