Python makes it easy to store, query, and transform geodata. We will run through a handful of useful GIS libraries and patterns that let you do magical things with your maps. If you want to make maps that are more interactive and more interesting, this talk is for you.
This talk will demystify the different parts of a usual map stack, including:
GeoSpatial Datastores (RDBMS & NoSQL)
Map servers (that query the geodata)
Tile servers (that chunk the data into tiles and cache it)
