This new project provides tools to play with geographical data. It also works with non-geographical data, except for map visualizations :).

There are embedded data sources in the project, but you can easily play with your own data in addition to the available ones. Files containing data about airports, train stations, countries, ... are loaded, then you can:

 - performs various types of queries ( find this key, or find keys with this property)
 - fuzzy searches based on string distance ( find things roughly named like this)
 - geographical searches ( find things next to this place)
 - get results on a map, or export it as csv data, or as a Python object

This is entirely written in Python. The core part is a Python package, but there is a command line tool as well!
