geo_qt

The repository consists of a toolkit for creating geo-data inspired artworks to accompany the AHRC funded Digital Realism project.

The geo_qt package is a collection of mapping tools for rendering large scale images and animations. It has been designed as a lightweight framework that can easily be extended to create interactive rendering tools. The GUI and the map interface are based on the Python PySide library.

Typically a map would be generated by specifying the map layers and data sources in a config file, overriding the map layer class rendering, and extending the GUI controls to interactively style the map.
