A pleasant interface for the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) data transparency services.
Sure, there's <https://github.com/codeforamerica/FCC-Python-Egg>, but I'm not a fan of the name and it hasn't been updated in a couple years (as of 2014-Mar-12).
Like most other PyPI packages.
pip install fcc
Or download the source code and run setup.py
python setup.py install
Import the wrapper functions to use in your code.
>>> from fcc.census_block_conversions import census_block_fips >>> census_block_fips(34.86,-111.79) '040250018012017'
Or use the simple command line script.
$ census_block_conversions 34.86 -111.79 040250018012017 $ echo '34.86,-111.79' > coordinates.csv $ census_block_conversions < coordinates.csv 040250018012017
