+WorldMill
+=========
+
+WorldMill provides a smoother and more productive Python interface to the open
+source GIS community's most trusted geodata access library; doing for [libgdal][libgdal]
+what lxml does for libxml2. WorldMill integrates readily with other Python GIS
+packages such as [pyproj][pyproj], [Rtree][Rtree], and [Shapely][Shapely].
+
+Dependencies
+------------
+
+WorldMill requires libgdal 1.3.2+.
+
+Building
+--------
+
+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 to WorldMill:
+
+ $ python benchmark.py
+
+Usage
+-----
+
+See [docs/reading-data.txt][docs/reading-data.txt] for examples.
