GeoPandas: Geospatial Data in Python Made Easy



PyData logo

GeoPandas extends the pandas data analysis library to work with geographic objects. File I/O, geometric operations, map projection transformations and plotting are provided in a high level interface that makes use of other libraries including Shapely and Fiona. GeoPandas is ideal for interactive use with IPython, and provides easy geospatial analysis and manipulation tools without a need for complicated desktop GIS applications or spatial databases.
