  • BlenderGIS

    Blender addons to make the bridge between Blender and geographic data

    Project mention: NumPy issues | /r/blender | 2023-09-27

    I'm running Linux. I've already tried to run sudo apt -y install python3-numpy as suggested here and tried to install numpy using blender's python console and import pip pip.main.... it's saying everything is installed, but I still cannot enable addon either run import numpy in console. Please ask me if you need more technical details.

  • osmnx

    OSMnx is a Python package to easily download, model, analyze, and visualize street networks and other geospatial features from OpenStreetMap.

    Project mention: I played with a python module called OSMnx to create the roadmaps of some cities. These include major highways,motorways,roads and streets that carry most of the traffic. | /r/india | 2023-07-13
  • Onboard AI

    Learn any GitHub repo in 59 seconds. Onboard AI learns any GitHub repo in minutes and lets you chat with it to locate functionality, understand different parts, and generate new code. Use it for free at

  • geemap

    A Python package for interactive geospaital analysis and visualization with Google Earth Engine.

    Project mention: I'm a senior in my CS major and it's incredible I didn't hear about GIS projects until now. Glad to be here. | /r/gis | 2023-05-22

    Try out Google Earth Engine and browse through it's catalogue to get a feel for what's available. GEE allows you to work with global datasets and immediately see a preview of the results (there's also geemap if you prefer doing this from a Python notebook instead of the online JS editor)

  • leafmap

    A Python package for interactive mapping and geospatial analysis with minimal coding in a Jupyter environment

    Project mention: FLaNK Stack for 25 September 2023 | | 2023-09-25
  • rasterio

    Rasterio reads and writes geospatial raster datasets

    Project mention: Python: How to save NumPy 2d-array to an asc-file so that it can be opened in ArcGIS Pro? | /r/gis | 2023-07-04

    You're missing transform headers etc, you can write it out with GDAL but rasterio is generally easier to use than the Python GDAL bindings, here's an example.

  • mesa

    Mesa is an open-source Python library for agent-based modeling, ideal for simulating complex systems and exploring emergent behaviors. (by projectmesa)

  • Fiona

    Fiona reads and writes geographic data files

    Project mention: GIS Developer career path | /r/gis | 2022-12-12

    As has been said the definition of a GIS dev is far from written in stone, but to chime in from a personal standpoint: most of what I do is data wrangling/analysis with shapely/geopandas for vectors (or pygeos / fiona for performance when data volumes get large, but seeing as Shapely 2.0 just got released one can likely skip this part) + rasterio for rasters as well as parallelising these tasks for performance if needed (ray is great for that) and then performing machine learning learning against the data (mostly with sklearn and torch).

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • django-rest-framework-gis

    Geographic add-ons for Django REST Framework. Maintained by the OpenWISP Project.

    Project mention: OpenWrt 23.05.0-rc1 – First Release Candidate | | 2023-06-09

    Is this something similar to OpenWISP? It all sounds cool, but might be an overkill for small installations…


  • Photogrammetry-Guide

    Photogrammetry Guide. Photogrammetry is widely used for Aerial surveying, Agriculture, Architecture, 3D Games, Robotics, Archaeology, Construction, Emergency management, and Medical.

  • qgis-earthengine-examples

    A collection of 300+ Python examples for using Google Earth Engine in QGIS

  • basemap

    Plot on map projections (with coastlines and political boundaries) using matplotlib

  • 30DayMapChallenge

    Official repo for the #30DayMapChallenge data visualization project. Open to everyone!

    Project mention: Best way to get more professional with QGIS? | /r/QGIS | 2023-03-05

    Although it will take some time before it takes place again, i would advice to participate in the 30 day map challenge. Try to make something that you think is cool and is just outside your knowledge zone.

  • awesome-spectral-indices

    A ready-to-use curated list of Spectral Indices for Remote Sensing applications.

    Project mention: Any tips or resources for vegetation analysis using 8 band imagery compared to 4 band? | /r/gis | 2023-05-02

    You might find this github repo useful:
