Who This Book Is For

This book is ideal for Python programmers who are tasked with or wish to make a special-purpose GIS application. Analysts, political scientists, geographers, and GIS specialists seeking a creative platform to experiment with cutting-edge spatial analysis, but who are still only beginners in Python, will also find this book beneficial. Familiarity with Tkinter application development in Python is preferable but not mandatory.

In Detail

This book provides you with the resources to successfully develop your own GIS application in Python. The book begins by walking you through the loading and saving of data structures before you start to build the look and feel of your application and create its interactive map window. You’ll then move on to managing, editing, and analyzing spatial data from within the application and finish with instructions for packaging the application for distribution.

By the end of the book, you should be able to use your GIS application as a template for further development, with the potential to expand and customize it to suit your needs.
