Python interface to Spatialite
pyspatialite is an interface to the SQLite 3.x embedded relational database engine with spatialite extensions.
It is almost fully compliant with the Python database API version 2.0 and also exposes the unique features of SQLite and spatialite.
pip install pyspatialite
In some cases, the most recent pypi release may be in a pre-release stage. In order to install pre-release packages, you must include the option '--pre' in your pip command:
pip install --pre pyspatialite
pyspatialite extends the sqlite3 interface, and so can be used in place of sqlite3 when modelling spatial information. The main interface is contained in the
import pyspatialite.dbapi2 as db con = db.connect(':memory:') # Test that the spatialite extension has been loaded: cursor = con.execute('SELECT sqlite_version(), spatialite_version()') print cursor.fetchall() # Output should be something like: [(u'3.7.9', u'3.0.1')]
