A geographic visualization module that has one-liners for quickly inspecting a shapefile in a pop-up window, building and styling basic maps with multiple shapefile layers, and/or saving to imagefiles. No dependencies or installation needed.

Status: Beta testing

Depends on:

Optional extensions: Aggdraw, PIL, PyCairo

Python versions: 2.6, 2.7

OS Platforms: Windows, OSX



Viewing a single shapefile:

import geovis




Just place folder anywhere importable



Primarily I am a social scientist and data wrangler on topics of political violence and public opinion, but I have increasingly gotten into Python programming and development, particularly focusing on geographic analysis, image rendering/drawing/visualization, and user-friendly Tkinter GUI software building.
