Trainers: Jáchym Čepický (, Tom Kralidis , Angelos Tzotsos (OSGeo)

Schedule: Tuesday Morning 9-13

Places: 30


This workshop will also take place on Tuesday Noon



Python is one of the most popular programming languages, with strong support in nowadays GIS technologies. This workshop will give you overview of some basic libraries and their Python bindings (GDAL, Proj4), more abstract and easier to be used libraries (Rasterio, Fiona, Shapely), and show you, how to access GeoServer and Mapserver from Python script.

OGC Standards and how to deal with them, will be demonstrated using OWSLib. Apparently, the topic is so wide, that at the end nobody is expected to master all or at least one of mentioned (or not mentioned) technologies.

This workshop is meant as introduction to the world of GeoPython and brief overview.
