I'm trying to comfirm an address is a good address via google. Meaning does
google report that the address exist.
If I do
urllib.urlopen( "http://maps.google.com/maps/geo?%s" % params )
with the address in params. I get the longitude and latitude correctly.
If I use the following in the address bar of a browser
"http://maps.google.com?q='18 Tadlock Place Woodland CA'"
But if I attempt this
urllib.urlopen( "http://maps.google.com?q='18 Tadlock Place Woodland CA'" )
it always fails.
So I don't understand urllib.urlopen(). Could some kind soul explain what I'm
