Data Science Toolkit Launched

Pete Warden, a British-born programmer, launched a project called, Data Science Toolkit.

Some of the key features of Data Science Toolkit include:

- Geocoding (currently US only) - this uses the open source geocoder developed by geoIQ using TIGER data. There are no transaction limits or restrictive terms associated with it. Users can also run it offline.

- Reverse geocoding - takes a point and gives information about users where they are. This is not a unique feature, but has the same advantages as the geocoding functionality in terms of setup and lack of restrictions.

- GeoDict is a tool that emulates Yahoo's Placemaker and pulls location data out of unstructured English text - its API is identical to Placemaker.
