Chapter 5. Working with Geospatial Data in Python

In this chapter, we combine the Python libraries and geospatial data covered earlier to accomplish a variety of tasks. These tasks have been chosen to demonstrate various techniques for working with geospatial data in your Python programs; while in some cases there are quicker and easier ways to achieve these results (for example, using command-line utilities), we will create these solutions in Python so you can learn how to work with geospatial data in your own Python programs.

This chapter will cover:

  • Reading and writing geospatial data in both vector and raster format
  • Changing the datums and projections used by geospatial data
  • Representing and storing geospatial data within your Python programs ...
