An Agilytics Web Framework using GeoDjango

Updated: Feb 27

GeoDjango is a world-class geographic Web Framework. GeoDjango is a part of contrib module of Django. It is useful to create geographic web applications.

The framework is loosely coupled with high-level Python interfaces for GIS geometry and raster operations. It eases data manipulation in different formats.

It is simple to create geometry fields editing from the admin module.

GeoDjango also supplements the Django admin by allowing users to create and modify geometries on a JavaScript slippy map.




Let’s dive into some dirty coding work.


Create a file called admin.py inside a web application with the following code:


from django.contrib.gis import admin

from .models import WorldBorder


admin.site.register(WorldBorder, admin.GeoModelAdmin)


Edit the urls.py in the geodjango application folder as follows:


from django.contrib.gis import admin

from django.urls import include, path


urlpatterns = [

path('admin/', admin.site.urls),

]


Create an admin user:


$ python manage.py createsuperuser


Start the Django development server:


$ python manage.py runserver


Now browse http://localhost:8000/admin/, and log in with the user created above. The geometries can be edited by clicking on a polygon and dragging the vertices to the desired position.
