timezonefinderL

https://img.shields.io/travis/MrMinimal64/timezonefinderL.svg?branch=master

timezonefinderL is the faster and lightweight, but outdated version of the original timezonefinder. The data takes up 9MB (instead of 19,5MB as with the previous tz_world data). Around 56% of the coordinates of all timezone polygons have been simplified and around 60% of the polygons (e.g. small islands) have then been included in the simplified polygons.

NOTE: The underlying data is outdated, because the tz_world data set this package was build on is not being maintained any more. Use this package in favour of timezonefinder when size and speed matter more you than actuality.

NOTE: As in the new version of timezonefinder the timezone polygons do not follow the shorelines (the borders of a timezone are simplified when there is no directly neighbouring timezone). As a consequence the results of the functions certain_timezone_at() and closest_timezone_at() are not really meaningful!

For a visualisation of the results (e.g. shapes of polygons) check out the GUI and API at: TimezonefinderL GUI

For everything else please refer to the original DOCUMENTATION.

Of course the commands need to modified:

pip install timezonefinderL
from timezonefinderL import TimezoneFinder
...
