This group is for teaching the fundamentals of the Python language and 
its standard library. You probably can solve this using standard Python 
but I suspect there will be more specific libraries around that you can 
install that will help with this problem. Those libraries will likely be 
a better place to ask.

That having been said, if you want a pure Puython solution we can try to 
help, but we need a lot more detail about what the data looks like and 
what exactly you expect out. Your description is a bit vague and while I 
might be able to find out what you mean by Googling a bit, I'm not that 
keen to spend my time that way. The more you help us the more we can 
help you...
