“Python Geospatial Development”

Erik Westra (2013)

If you’re experienced in Python here’s an opportunity to get deep into Geospatial development, linking data to global locations. No prior knowledge required – this book takes you through it all, step by step.


  • Build your own complete and sophisticated mapping applications in Python.
  • Walks you through the process of building your own online system for viewing and editing geospatial data.
  • Practical, hands-on tutorial that teaches you all about geospatial development in Python



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.
