Access and transform geospatial feature data
WorldMill provides a smoother and more productive Python interface to the open source GIS community’s most trusted geodata access library; doing for libgdal what lxml does for libxml2. WorldMill integrates readily with other Python GIS packages such as pyproj, Rtree, and Shapely.
WorldMill requires libgdal 1.3.2+.
From the distribution root:
$ ./cypsrc $ python setup.py build_ext --inplace $ PYTHONPATH=src python tests.py
If you have ogr.py installed, you can compare to WorldMill:
$ PYTHONPATH=src python benchmark.py
