GeoDjango - the geo extensions to the popular Python Web Framework - and more!

  • October 26, 2011 · 7:00 PM


It has been some time since our last GeoMeetup, so let's schedule one!

Location: In downtown SF (Trulia's offices).

Who: Zain Memon - ex-Django committer - current Trulia geo-guru

What: GeoDjango - and more!

GeoDjango is an add-on for Django that turns it into a world-class geographic Web framework. GeoDjango strives to make it as simple as possible to create geographic Web applications, like location-based services. Some features include:

  • Django model fields for OGC geometries.
  • Extensions to Django’s ORM for the querying and manipulation of spatial data.
  • Loosely-coupled, high-level Python interfaces for GIS geometry operations and data formats.
  • Editing of geometry fields inside the admin.
  • And more!


About Zain: Zain is one of the two people on the geo team at Trulia, who has released data-viz hits such as crime mapsweeplaces, and tendermaps. He uses Python and GeoDjango to create pretty, useful maps.


Expect coolness. See you then!

    Are there any presentations or videos of this meetup online? or blog posts?

    I wish that this was way more in-depth. We are a GeoDjango shop and this was a super simple introduction to GeoDjango.

    Met good people, learned where to look for really detailed answers, and drank good beer.

    It was a rare presentation, short and sweet, which didn't try to cover every last little thing about GeoDjango in an hour. Good job!
