API wrapper for WiGLE

Project Description

PyGLE is a wrapper for the WiGLE WiFi mapping API.


To install PyGLE for Python 2.x or 3.x just call pip install pygle.

You’ll also need to set up an account with WiGLE and retrieve your API details to go into the file.


Using the API wrapper is very much like using the API itself. PyGLE has four modules, corresponding to the four sections of the WiGLE API v2. So each section is a module in PyGLE and each API endpoint is a function in that module.

To use the API, first import the section, then call the endpoint function. So to perform an authenticated GET request against an endpoint:

>>> from pygle import network
>>> network.geocode(addresscode="London")
{'success': True, 'results': [{'address': {'city': 'London',
'county': 'London', 'state_district': 'Greater London', 'state': 'England',
'country': 'UK', 'country_code': 'gb'}, 'lat': 51.50732, 'lon': -0.1276399,
'importance': 0.9754895765402, 'place_id': 233847357,
'licence': 'Data (c) OpenStreetMap contributors, ODbL 1.0.',
'osm_type': 'relation',
'boundingbox': [51.28676, 51.69187, -0.5103699, 0.33401]}]}

This returns a dict, or raises an HTTPError if something went wrong.

API documentation

The PyGLE API wrapper is fully documented with docstrings which were correct as of 11/2/2017, but in case of any disagreement between these and the interactive WiGLE API docs, the WiGLE docs take precedence. Please submit any discrepancies as issues here.

The sections and endpoints available are:
