Carmen

A Python version of Carmen, a library for geolocating tweets.

Given a tweet, Carmen will return Location objects that represent a physical location. Carmen uses both coordinates and other information in a tweet to make geolocation decisions. It's not perfect, but this greatly increases the number of geolocated tweets over what Twitter provides.

To install, simply run:

$ python setup.py install

To run the Carmen frontend, see:

$ python -m carmen.cli --help
