gis-data - Sample data for GIS packages

Sometimes you need sample raster and vector data for your python applications.

Sometimes you need bad data for your corner test cases. (No projections, NaN values).

Sometimes you just need test metadata.

This library provides all of the above.


The latest release can be installed using:

pip install gisdata
