========== GeoAlchemy ========== GIS Support for `SQLAlchemy <http://www.sqlalchemy.org/>`_. Introduction ------------ GeoAlchemy is an extension of SQLAlchemy. It provides support for Geospatial data types at the ORM layer using SQLAlchemy. It aims to support spatial operations and relations specified by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). The project started under Google Summer of Code Program under the mentorship of `Mark Ramm-Christensen <http://compoundthinking.com/blog/>`_. Requirements ------------ Requires SQLAlchemy > 0.6. Supported on Python 2.5 and Python 2.6. Should also work with Python 2.4 but has not been tested. It also requires a supported spatial database. Supported Spatial Databases --------------------------- At present `PostGIS <http://postgis.refractions.net/>`_, `Spatialite <http://www.gaia-gis.it/spatialite/>`_, `MySQL <http://www.mysql.com/>`_, `Oracle <http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/index.html>`_, and `MS SQL Server 2008 <http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/spatial-data.aspx?pf=true>`_ are supported. Support ------- GeoAlchemy is at an early stage of development. Its mailing list is available on `Google Groups <http://groups.google.com/group/geoalchemy>`_. The source code can be found on `BitBucket <http://bitbucket.org/geoalchemy/geoalchemy/>`_. Also, feel free to email the author directly to send bugreports, feature requests, patches, etc. Installation ------------ To install type as usual:: $ easy_install GeoAlchemy Or, download the package, change into geoalchemy dir and type:: $ python setup.py install Documentation ------------- Documentation is available online at http://geoalchemy.org.
