Examples

Map of Google mail contacts

If you have a Google Mail account you can export your contacts with addresses to e.g. Outlook CSV format. In Outlook CSV the first name is stored in column 0 and the last name in column 2; the full address is stored in column 23. Now assuming you have a file called contacts.csv in Outlook CSV format you can create a map from it like

$ python3 kartenmacher.py contacts.csv 0,2 23 map.html

This will create a HTML file map.html showing an interactive map (based on Openstreetmap) with the addresses of all your contacts marked on the map. You can click on each marker to see the name and the address. Pretty cool, isn't it?

Map of Google spreadsheet

If you have a Google spreadsheet with name information stored in column 0, address information stored in column 1 and a corresponding web link stored in column 2 you can easily create a map from it. First download the Google spreadsheet as CSV file. You can do this manually or you can download the file directly (when you have set share to "Anyone with the link can view") in a bash terminal (see also https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10730712/download-unpublished-google-spreadsheet-as-csv)

$ curl https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/LONG_ID_STRING/export?format=csv -o spreadsheet.csv
$ python3 kartenmacher.py spreadsheet.csv 0 1 2 map.html

This will again create a HTML file map.html showing an interactive map with the addresses of your spreadsheet marked on the map. If you click on a marker you will see in addition a web link (from column 2 of your spreadsheet), which you can click on and will open the corresponding web page to the marker in a new tab.
