  • Spatial data and web mapping with Python

    by Paul Smith

    Spatial data are often seen as opaque to most developers, and while dealing with them does require a shift in approach from the data types we most regularly handle, they needn’t be the domain of specialists. High-quality Python libraries and Python-based applications exist for operating on and transforming spatial data, and for creating visualizations, including maps for presentation on the web.

    This talk will be an overview of the Python libraries and applications available for handling spatial and geospatial data and creating maps for the web. It will cover libraries for open and transforming spatial data formats and representations, spatial operators and predicates for queries and relationships, spatial indexes for efficient queries, and compositing and rendering map tiles, as well as desktop applications extensible with Python that replace much of the functionality of "enterprise" GIS software.

    At 4:00pm to 4:55pm, Saturday 10th March

    In E3, Santa Clara Convention Center
