Google Maps API wrapper for Python

January 2019, Markus Konrad markus.konrad@wzb.eu / Berlin Social Science Center

Enables convenient caching of Google Maps API results. So far only the Geocoding API is supported.

Requirements

  • Python 3.4+
  • googlemaps package

Usage

from gmapswrapper import GMapsWrapper

# to enable logging output to console:
import logging 
logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)
logging.getLogger('gmapswrapper').setLevel(logging.INFO)

# "cachedir" must be a writable directory to save the cache file
gmaps = GMapsWrapper('cachedir', api_key='...')

queries = [
    'Reichpietschufer 50, Berlin',
    # ...
]

# Returns dict with address -> result mapping
geocoding_res = gmaps.geocode(queries)
geocoding_res
## {'Reichpietschufer 50, Berlin': [{'address_components': [{'long_name': '50',
##                                                           'short_name': '50',
##                                                           'types': ['street_number']},
##                                                          {'long_name': 'Reichpietschufer',
##  ...

Running this a second time will not query the Google API but take the result from the cache file.
