The GIS features of Django aren't restricted to being applied to real world maps and planets. This talk will show how to display and interact with maps of imaginary lands, such as game maps or lands in science fiction novels. We'll uncover a bit of how Django GIS works in the process, separating the map display from the modeling.

Come along to see one approach to create minimal and well-performing models for such real-life situations.
