geonamescache 0.8

Geonames data for continents, cities and US states.

Latest Version: 0.10

Geonames Cache
==============

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
<http://www.geonames.org/>`_.


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
- rather call get_dataset_by_key with name of dataset, so there is no need for *_by_names methods
