Usage

This library has 1 function you can use.
import skyscrapers
list_of_skyscraper = skyscrapers.get_skyscrapers()
Additionally, some of the functions can return a sample of the Big Data using an extra argument. If you use this sampled Big Data, it may be much faster. When you are sure your code is correct, you can remove the argument to use the full dataset.
import skyscrapers
# These may be slow!
list_of_skyscraper = skyscrapers.get_skyscrapers(test=True)

Documentation
