The book’s focus is on developing your own desktop GIS including a graphical user interface using open source Python tools, with a special emphasis on keeping it lightweight and portable and using the builtin Tkinter GUI toolkit. It covers the entire process, both vector and raster data IO, interactive visualization (my favorite), file management, and analysis functionality.

The discounted book can be ordered here, and there is also a “Free Sample” icon above the book description.

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.
