Awesome Geospatial List Awesome Build Status

A curated list of geospatial tools, data, tutorials, information, and more



Various awesome tools for geospatial work

  • QGIS: A Free and Open Source Geographic Information System - Awesome for viewing raster and vector data
  • GIMP: For editing visual (non-analytic) raster products
  • Online GeoJSON viewer/editor


Awesome libraries to support geospatial development

  • GDAL: Geospatial Data Abstraction Library - C/C++ library with Python bindings and helpful command line tools for handling many raster and vector geospatial data formats
  • Rasterio: Python package for reading/writing raster datasets, based on GDAL
  • Shapely: Python package for manipulation and analysis of planar geometric objects, based on GEOS
  • GEOS: GEOS (Geometry Engine - Open Source) is a C++ port of the ​Java Topology Suite (JTS)


Public Datasets

Data that is publicly available at no extra cost (access fees may apply for AWS/GCP)

  • Copernicus: European Space Agency (ESA) provides vast amounts of public data, most notably Sentinel-1 for radar and Sentinel-2 for optical satellite data.
  • Landsat: Earth-observation satellites from the USGS.
  • AWS Earth: Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides several datasets, including Landsat 8, Sentinel-2, NEXRAD, OpenStreetMap, and more.
  • Planet Open California: Planet's open dataset over California as CC-BY-SA license
