Sometimes you need bad data for your corner test cases. (No projections, NaN values).

Sometimes you just need test metadata.

pip install gisdata


Get the absolute path to the the sample data from python:

>>> from gisdata import DATA_DIR

>>> print GOOD_DATA
>>> from gisdata import METADATA_DIR
>>> print METADATA_DIR
>>> from gisdata import GOOD_METADATA
