JuliaGIS

A package for the visualization and manipulation of geographic data.

Concept

JuliaGIS provides a frontend for interacting with geographic data in Julia. The backend is provided by GDAL.jl for raster data, the as-yet unwritten OGR.jl wrapper for vector data, and Images for visualization.

Installation

Pkg.clone("git://github.com/wkearn/GIS.jl")

Usage

using GIS

allows you to use all of the GIS contained within GDAL, the fictional OGR and any other core GIS packages. Thus using GIS allows you to open_raster("/path/to/raster/file").

display(raster)

converts the raster to a RasterImage type and displays the RasterImage using ImageView

Todo

  1. Multiple raster display -- this probably requires some messing with GDAL.jl (and maybe OGR to deal with projections)
  2. Multi-band raster support -- once this is added to GDAL.jl, a couple of quick tweaks to RasterImage properties will let you display multi-band rasters as RGB images.
