A python module for a geolocator using
- Google API
- Yahoo API
Input: service_name, location name
Output format: JSON (easy front end parsing)
Basic Google/Yahoo webservice calls are in
This needs tying into the front-end [BluePrintGISLocationsHierarchy#LocationSelector Location Selector].
GeoNames support needs adding (there is some GeoNames functionality in S3GIS).
Output most likely to be used in: OpenLayers
A simple controller function would be nice to access the module classes
- functionality for BBOX
- provision to get results from all services
- provision to get results in multiple formats(xml, JSON, kml)
