Geospatial analysis in Python

Project description

Karta is a simple and fast framework for spatial analysis in Python.


  • Clean geographically-aware vector and gridded data types

  • Integration with pyproj to support a wide range of coordinate systems and transformations

  • A selection of geographical analysis methods including geodetic length and area calculations, intersections, convex hulls, raster sampling and profiling, and grid warping

  • IO for several common geographical formats, including GeoJSON, shapefiles (through pyshp), ESRI ASCII, and GeoTiff (through GDAL). Vector geometries implement __geo_interface__.

Karta works with Python 2.7 and Python 3.3+.


See the online manual, read the tutorial, or search the API documentation.

The manual can also be built offline with Sphinx by running make from the doc/ directory. The documentation is built from source code docstrings and information in the Wiki.
