GeoDjango has been called a web framework for (Neo) Geographers with Deadlines. Students will use a preconfigured GeoDjango application to get introduced to core Django functionality. After a short example of digitizing and sharing features, we will dive into building the demo system from scratch. After the workshop, students should be able to return home with the tools and knowledge required to build practical geospatial web applications.
