[ANN] Whitebox.jl: A Julia frontend for WhiteboxTools

Hi everyone!

I would like to announce a new package called Whitebox.jl.

This package provides a Julia frontend for WhiteboxTools, which is an open-source command-line program for geospatial analysis created by Dr. John Lindsay.

WhiteboxTools contains about 500 tools that span the topics of Image analysis, hydrologic analysis, LiDAR analysis and more.

Whitebox.jl installs WhiteboxTools (v2.1.0) and allows users to run any WhiteboxTools function from Julia.

There are already a few ways to use WhiteboxTools (R, Python, command line), but my hope is that Whitebox.jl will simplify workflows for people that want to do more of their geospatial analysis with Julia.
