geonamescache 0.11

Geonames data for continents, cities and US states.

Latest Version: 0.20

A Python library that provides functions to retrieve names and codes of continents, countries and US states as Python dictionaries.

Geonames data is obtained from GeoNames.

Installation

To install geonamescache, run:

$ sudo pip install geonamescache

Or, if necessary:

$ sudo easy_install geonamescache

Usage

A simple usage example:

import geonamescache

gc = geonamescache.GeonamesCache()
countries = gc.get_countries()
# print countries dictionary
print(countries)
# you really wanna do something more useful with the data...

Methods

Currently geonamescache provides the following methods, that all return dictionaries with the requested data:

  • get_continents()
  • get_countries()
  • get_us_states()
  • get_cities()
  • get_countries_by_names()
  • get_us_states_by_names()
  • get_cities_by_name(name)

TODOs

  • analyze performance of get_cities_by_name
  • call get_dataset_by_key with name of dataset, so there is no need for *_by_names methods
