Important Python Libraries for Geospatial

Highlight, Libraries, Programming
Today, I take a look at the Python Libraries useful when dealing with Geospatial Data. The most popular GIS; QGIS and ArcGIS are developed on Python thus giving us the power to extend their tools to suit our needs in the organization. For Instance, QGIS offers the “Plugin Builder” tool that is focused on personal tool creation by individuals or organization to do specific tasks as required. To do this, there are some Python Libraries that are required. Anyone who has worked with scripts in either QGIS, ArcGIS,Jupyter or GeoDjango for geospatial data analysis must have interacted with some, if not all, of these libraries. My experience with most applications more so QGIS, Jupyter and GeoDjango, has enabled me draft this post as most of these libraries seem confusing to…
