geopy, a geocoding toolbox for Python

Saw it via, the geographical
database-cum-web-service which I blogged about today.


From the geopy site:

[ geopy makes it easy for developers to locate the coordinates of
addresses, cities, countries, and landmarks across the globe using
third-party geocoders and other data sources, such as wikis.

geopy currently includes support for six geocoders: Google Maps,
Yahoo! Maps, Windows Local Live (Virtual Earth),,
GeoNames, MediaWiki pages (with the GIS extension), and Semantic
MediaWiki pages.

Who's using geopy?

My Apartment Map is proud to use and support geopy: geopy has allowed us to increase the number of apartments in our index and thus increase the quality of our site overall. ]

Inspired by nature.
