Xiao Yu and S├ębastien Fievet 19/03/2010

Based on googlemaps 1.0.2 by John Kleint


This is a Python wrapper for Google Geocoding API V3

It allows you to directly convert an address to coordinates or vice versa. It also allows you to validate, format and split addresses into civic number, street name, city etc.


Its only dependency is the json module, included with Python versions 2.6 and later and available for download as simplejson for earlier versions. It is developed on Python 2.7 but should work on earlier versions.


You can install this package using pip:

sudo pip install pygeocoder

or download the source from and install

python install
