After the fun of completing ArcPy and ArcGIS: Second Edition, I’m pleased to announce that I am working on a new book for Packt Publishing: Geospatial for Python 3.

Python 3 has become mature and is supported by all major modules written to process and analyze geospatial data. To celebrate the maturation of Python 3, Geospatial for Python 3 will be written specifically to highlight how to use Python 3 as a GIS professional.

This wide-ranging book will cover open-source and commercial geospatial technologies, all of which have Python bindings or are written in pure Python. From GeoDjango to GeoPandas to spatial SQL & geodatabases, and even machine learning, this new book will introduce and explore all kinds of ways to perform analysis and create data insights.

I’m pleased to be joined in this effort by two experience GIS professionals with books to their name. Paul Crickard, author of Leaflet.js Essentials, is a GIS expert located in New Mexico. Eric Van Rees is an educator, writer, and analyst located in Spain. He has written trainings and articles about GIS for years; check out his writings here.

This book is slated for release in late February, 2018. I’m excited about this new effort and look forward to announcing its official release. I will be releasing sample chapters here as we get closer to publication.
