upoints

upoints is a collection of GPL v3 licensed modules for working with points on Earth, or other near spherical objects. It allows you to calculate the distance and bearings between points, mangle xearth/xplanet data files, work with online UK trigpoint databases, NOAA’s weather station database and other such location databases.

Previous versions of upoints were called earth_distance, but the name was changed as it no longer reflected the majority of uses the packages was targeted at.

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.
