Usage Example

Make a new geocoder and geocode and address:

>>> from omgeo import Geocoder
>>> g = Geocoder()
>>> result = g.geocode('340 12th St, Philadelphia PA')

Take a look at the result:

>>> result
{'candidates': [
  <340 S 12th St, Philadelphia, PA, 19107 (-75.161461, 39.94532) EsriWGS>,
  <340 N 12th St, Philadelphia, PA, 19107 (-75.158434, 39.958728) EsriWGS>
 ],
 'upstream_response_info': [<EsriWGS 1054ms>]}

Take a closer look at the information in our address Candidate objects:

>>> [c.__dict__ for c in result["candidates"]]
    [{'geoservice': 'EsriWGS',
      'locator': u'USA.AddressPoint',
      'locator_type': u'PointAddress',
      'match_addr': u'340 S 12th St, Philadelphia, PA, 19107',
      'score': 90.87,
      'wkid': 4326,
      'x': -75.161461,
      'y': 39.94532},
     {'geoservice': 'EsriWGS',
      'locator': 'interpolation',
      'locator_type': u'StreetAddress',
      'match_addr': u'340 N 12th St, Philadelphia, PA, 19107',
      'score': 90.87,
      'wkid': 4326,
      'x': -75.158434,
      'y': 39.958728}]
