Crawling the IEEE Conference Search and displays a map

What is it for?

You can use the iEEE Conference Search (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), but it is a list. I think it is much more interesting to see a map, where conferences happening.

How to use it?


Probably it is better to use the .ipynb (iPython Notebook), because I am using it and probably I forgot to update the .py

What is it doin'?

  1. search iEEE Conference Database
  2. extract all infos from website
  3. ask Google for location of the adress (Geoencoding)
  4. save .kml file (for Google Earth)
  5. create World map, US Map and Europe Map
