State of GIS package ecosystem?


#1

I’m looking to move as much of my workflow as I can into julia from R/Python, and was hoping to get a sense of what the Julia GIS ecosystem looks like (especially for vector data).

Has Julia developed anything like sp in R or shapely/geopandas in Python?

(last state of the ecosystem post is a couple years old)

To my knowledge, the closest thing to shapely is LibGEOS.jl and the closest thing to fiona+rasterio is ArchGDAL.jl

I am still in the midst of designing a more user-friendly API, but if you’re looking to get started now, Andrew has started a series of posts on using ArchGDAL: https://github.com/acgeospatial/Julia_Geospatial
