GeoLocator

Initial work done by by Zubin Mithra (zubin71)

A python module for a geolocator using

  • Google API
  • Yahoo API
  • GeoNames

Input: service_name, location name

Output format: JSON (easy front end parsing)

Status

Basic Google/Yahoo webservice calls are in modules/s3gis.py.

This needs tying into the front-end Location Selector.

GeoNames support needs adding (there is some GeoNames functionality in S3GIS).

API

Output most likely to be used in: OpenLayers

ToDo

A simple controller function would be nice to access the module classes

  1. functionality for BBOX
  2. provision to get results from all services
  3. provision to get results in multiple formats(xml, JSON, kml)
  4. support caching
