GIS Programming: Languages breakdown. A while back, I wrote a post on Learning GIS Programming, giving an overview of the different programming languages being used in GIS.
A follow-up post with more detailed information on the different programming languages has languished at the bottom of my To-Do list for a while now. Luckily for me, I found the following post from Atle on his personal website that covers pretty much everything that I wished to write about in the first place. I contacted Atle and he was graciously to let us re-post his original article on Geoawesomeness. Thank you Atle Info: The following post was written by Atle Frenvik Sveen on his personal website and has been re-posted under Creative Commons.

Copyright: Andreas F. Borchert Wikipedia Google Maps is arguably one of the most famous Geospatial applications ever. Overnight, it transformed the way we navigate and made it mainstream to use a digital map to get from Point A to Point B. Philippe Estèbe - Le site de l'Ihedate. Mining the Social Web, 2nd Edition - O'Reilly Media. This book uses, at its core, a couple of services to permit the reader to do code experiments using pre-written Python modules in a specially packaged format.
The idea is that you install the two services required and then you can experiment to your heart's content with the code. The Problem. Bienvenue à toi, voyageur du code ! - Voyageurs du code. Geospatial developement simplified with python. In this article I am going to show how easy it is to build a real world Geo-spatial application with python.
D'un langage de spécialiste, à un langage accessible par tous, le code devient un "super pouvoir" capable de décupler la créativité, bouleverser les industries et transformer la société. Outil d'innovation, de prototypage et d'accélération par excellence, le code semble devenu la botte secrète des start-ups. Nouveau langage, le code serait-il la grammaire 2.0 que tout écolier doit connaître pour développer son esprit critique à l'heure du numérique ? Nouveau paradigme économique, le code façonnera nécessairement les entreprises de demain en les transformant en de réelles organisations du XXIème siècle : des organisations programmables.
6 Reasons to Get Over Your Fear of Coding and Start Making Better Maps - Wired Science. The web has changed so many things that we can be forgiven for developing callouses on whatever part of our brain controls amazement.
But reminisce for a moment, back to a time when you had to buy maps, pay for directions, and if you wanted to create new views of the world, you needed access to some combination of patience, mathematical expertise, and expensive technology.
