I had the opportunity to talk about Python and GIS Development with my talk titled “Geo+Python: A Shallow Dive into GIS Development”. This basically a quick introduction to GIS for Python developers and also highlighting Open Source Geospatial tools and packages that can be used by PyDevs in their projects.

The presention consisted mostly:

  • Introduction to GIS; Data types, projections, etc
  • OSGeo: QGIS, GDAL, GeoNode, etc
  • OpenStreetMap; the free and colloborative map of the world
  • Some geospatial libraries
