The purpose of mordecai is to accept text and return structured geographic information in return. It does this in several ways:

It uses MITIE to extract placenames from the text. In the default configuration, it uses the out-of-the-box MITIE models, but these can be changed out for custom models when needed.

It uses word2vec's models, with gensim's awesome Python wrapper, to infer the country focus of an article given the word vectors of the article's placenames.

It uses a country-filtered search of the geonames gazetteer in Elasticsearch (with some custom logic) to find the lat/lon for each place mentioned in the text.

It runs as a Flask-RESTful service.
