Gets you started with python gis development, 16 Jun. 2011
This book covers GIS theory, python GIS libraries, tools, databases, datasources and web frameworks. It's focussed at getting an experienced developer started with GIS development in python. As such, it contains lots of code samples and gives you pointers for more in-depth documentation.
Even though there's a lot of python GIS documentation and tutorials on the web, this well-structured book is valuable because it brings the important information together in a concise way. I'll make sure new developers on my geo-projects read this first.
