Learn how to build webGIS applications with Python and Django

Welcome to the Smart Map In Python Tutorial Series. In this tutorial series we'll be building a python GIS application from scratch using a variety of open source technologies. The purpose of this tutorial and many more to follow, is to take geospatial analytics and convert it into a functional application. We will be powering our application with a PostgreSQL and PostGIS database. In the front-end we'll use Bootstrap, JavaScript and Ajax. On the server side we'll be using Python 3 Django combined with use of scientific libraries like pandas, for our data transformation and conversion operations. The operating system that we will be working on is Ubuntu Linux 16.04.
