Installation and Examples

From PyPI

pip install fiftyone-location

You can confirm this is working with the following micro-example.

  • Create a resource key for free with the 51Degrees configurator. This defines the properties you want to access.
  • On the 'implement' page of the configurator, copy the resource key and replace YOUR_RESOURCE_KEY in the example below. Save this as examplelocation.py
  • Run the example with python examplelocation.py
  • Feel free to try different locations and property values.
from fiftyone_location.location_pipelinebuilder import LocationPipelineBuilder
pipeline = LocationPipelineBuilder(resource_key="YOUR_RESOURCE_KEY").build()
fd = pipeline.create_flowdata()
fd.evidence.add("query.51D_Pos_latitude", "40.730610")
fd.evidence.add("query.51D_Pos_longitude", "-73.935242")

For more in-depth examples, check out the examples page in the documentation.
