A resuable app with the boilerplate necessary for getting TIGER/LINE data into a GeoDjango project.

Project description

This app is intended to make it easier to add TIGER/Line data to a GeoDjango project and save people from writing this same code over and over (collectively).

It is not (yet) exhaustive, it’s just what I had and have needed in the past. If you have models / load scripts for other data in the set, please fork/add and send me a pull request if you add other shapefiles. If you come up with useful manager methods, I’d love to see those too.

It’s been tested and used with Django 1.10 and PostGIS + PostgreSQL.

Install

Download the 2016 Tigerline files for all zipcodes, all states, and all counties

ftp://ftp2.census.gov/geo/tiger/TIGER2016/

Unzip the files

Configure django.contrib.gis as described in the django docs.

Add “django.contrib.gis” and “tigerline” to INSTALLED_APPS

run python manage.py migrate which will run the migrations and make sure database tables are created.

If you want to import all three: run python manage.py load_tigerline –path=~/Path/to/shapefiles

Or there are individual management commands if you only need one set: run python manage.py load_counties –path=~/Path/to/shapefiles run python manage.py load_states –path=~/Path/to/shapefiles run python manage.py load_zipcodes –path=~/Path/to/shapefiles
