Fiona

Fiona is OGR's neater API – sleek elegance on the outside, unstoppable OGR(e) on the inside.

Fiona provides a smoother and more productive Python interface to the open source GIS community's most trusted geodata access library; doing for libgdal what lxml does for libxml2. Fiona integrates readily with other Python GIS packages such as pyproj, Rtree, and Shapely.

Dependencies

Fiona requires libgdal 1.3.2+.

Building and testing

From the distribution root:

$ virtualenv .
$ python setup.py test

or if you have nose:

$ virtualenv .
$ python setup.py develop
$ nosetests tests

If you have ogr.py installed, you can compare performance to Fiona:

$ python benchmark.py

Usage

See docs/reading-data.txt for examples.
