Address list map visualizer
Project motivated by the search for something nearby
(i.e. English-French translators in Paris), from a list of possible
addresses. Google maps does this with search terms. However in this
project we assume you already have a list of addresses.
Input will be either (1) some pdf, html, text, database, etc. file, or
(2) a url on the web where we can find such a document.
User interface will be command line or simple web application where
you upload a file or type the url.
Output will be a file with map annotations suitable for input to a web
map program such as openstreetmaps.
This is a very simple project and has probably already been done
before several times. However the point is to have an interesting
learning exercise, implementing 2 programs that do the same thing in 2
different languages: OCaml and Python.
