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.

# ProjPicker

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.

## ProjPicker running on Android using Termux

1. Install Termux from F-Droid
2. Run it from Android
3. Install Python: pkg install python
4. Install ProjPicker: pip install projpicker
5. Start the ProjPicker web server: projpicker -S
6. Open http://localhost:8000/ in the browser

See here.

## 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?

## Versioning

N(.N)*[{a|b|rc}N][.postN][.devN]

• PEP 440
• {a|b|rc|.dev}N towards and .postN away from the release
• Not fully compatible with semantic versioning
• Not using build numbers marching away from or towards a release, but check this interesting comment.
