Convert Latitude, Longitude To TimeZone

Hi All

 

I'm new to python (4 days J) and was wondering if anyone out there can help
me

 

I am trying to get the time zones for latitude and longitude  coordinates
but am having a few problems

The mistakes are probably very basic

 

I have a table in a database with around 600 rows. Each row contains a lat
long coordinate for somewhere in the world

I want to feed these co-ordinates into a function and then retrieve the time
zone. The aim being to convert events which have a local time stamp within
each of these 600 places into UTC time

I found a piece of code
[http://blog.pamelafox.org/2012/04/converting-addresses-to-timezones-in.html
] which uses the function [https://gist.github.com/pamelafox/2288222]

 

When I try to run the code, I get the error geonames is not defined (This is
the function previously linked to)

I have applied for an account with geonames, I think I have just saved the
function file in the wrong directory or something simple. Can anyone help

geonames_client = geonames.GeonamesClient('Username_alpha')

geonames_result = geonames_client.find_timezone({'lat': 48.871236, 'lng':
2.77928})

user.timezone = geonames_result['timezoneId']

 

Thanks
