Need to geocode some addresses? Here’s a five-lines-of-code solution based on “An A-Z of useful Python tricks” by Peter Gleeson:

from geopy import GoogleV3
place = "Krems an der Donau"
location = GoogleV3().geocode(place)
print(location.address)
print("POINT({},{})".format(location.latitude,location.longitude))
For more info, check out geopy:

How We Mapped 1.3m Data Points Using Mapbox - Features - Source: An OpenNews project
e learned so much on this project that this article could easily have been twice or three times its length. We left out topics including:

how we integrated D3 with React;
how we settled on the final map controls;
how we developed a color ramp for use across maps and charts;
how we approached the display of small multiple maps on mobile devices…
…and many more. Let us know in the comments if you’d like to hear more about these or any of the other topics covered in this article.

The broadband map was a challenging but ultimately hugely rewarding project for our team. We’re excited to take its lessons forward into our next major interactive piece and hope you find them useful too. Happy mapping!
