Wiki climate

Tool with which climate data can be extracted from Wikipedia for all cities.

Accompanying code to analysis what is best city to live in. Latest (October 2018) data can be seen at Kaggle.

Works by obtaining cities using SPARQL/Wikidata and then query Wikipedia (using pywikibot) to parse those weatherbox boxes. Data is stored in Mongo and can be exported to JSON with:

mongo.exe --quiet temp --eval "printjson(db.cities.find({}, {'_id':0}).toArray())" > wiki-climate.json
