Python Client for Mapzen APIs
A Python client for the Mapzen APIs.
- Forward geocoding to find a place by searching for an address or name
- Reverse geocoding to find what is located at a certain coordinate location
- Autocomplete to give real-time result suggestions without having to type the whole location
- Global coverage with prioritized local results

from mapzen.api import MapzenAPI api_key = 'your api_key' api = MapzenAPI(api_key) # Search a specific location # r = api.search('Ho Chi Minh') # Search within Vietnam r = api.search( 'Ho Chi Minh', boundary_country='VN' ) # Search within Vietnam and place types: country, region or locality (towns, hamlets, cities) r = api.search( 'Ho Chi Minh', boundary_country='VN', layers='country,region,locality' ) # Reverse geocoding r = api.reverse(48.858268, 2.294471) # Autocomplete r = api.autocomplete('Ho Chi Minh') # Expand an address (remove abbreviations, possibly with multiple ambiguities - for example, St may expand to either Street or Saint) r = api.expand('475 Sansome St San Francisco CA') # Parse an address r = api.parse('475 Sansome St San Francisco CA') # Parse an address, and get the results in a simple dictionary r = api.parse('475 Sansome St San Francisco CA', format='keys')
