Lubuntu 15.10 - A Geospatial Werewolf
Moving back into the realm of freedom, the upcoming release of Lubuntu 15.04, which I am running now on a few different machines but which will have its official release on October 22nd, offers new Python 3 versions of the geospatial libraries I described in a post back on April 19th. It also comes with QGIS version 2.8, which is a good thing indeed, since the version 2.4 that came with previous versions did not work properly (I couldn't get it to create layers using the DB Manager). Here are the Python 3 GIS packages I installed on this new version, code named Wily Werewolf:
I've been tasked this week with looking into how to use mapnik. Thanks to Wily, I'll be able to do this in Python 3.
