ProjPicker (projection picker) allows the user to select all projections whose extent completely contains given points, polylines, polygons, and bounding boxes. The goal is to make it easy and visual to select a desired projection by location.

Project description

ProjPicker

PyPI version Documentation Status

ProjPicker (projection picker) is a Python module that allows the user to select all coordinate reference systems (CRSs) whose extent completely contains given points, polylines, polygons, and bounding boxes using set-theoretic logical operators in a postfix notation. The goal is to make it easy and visual to select a desired projection by location. This project was motivated by a GRASS GIS feature request. See its documentation. The project uses a copy of GetOSM to download OpenStreetMap tiles.

ProjPicker Web is online at https://projpicker.pythonanywhere.com/.

For GRASS GIS, a new module g.projpicker that wraps around this project is available.

Ideas

  1. Client-only web application that doesn't require Python in the backend
  2. CRS hints: Crowdsourcing agency and product information? Is usage from PROJ enough?
