Adding Geo into your Django

Corryn Smith

Audience level:



Have you ever wanted to put a map on your Django project? Do you get lost in the GeoDjango documentation? If yes, this talk is for you! During this presentation, I will tell you about how you can use GeoDjango to enhance your Django project. From simple to interactive, I will show you some tricks and trades to make GeoDjango your new best friend.


This presentation will teach the audience the basics of GIS and GeoDjango. Once you know how to set up a Django project, putting a map on your webpage hasn't been easier. During my talk, I will show you how to navigate through the GeoDjango documentation as well as other handy tools such as Mapbox and Leaflet. In addition, I will show the audience two GeoDjango examples – a project about my Study Abroad trip and an interactive campus map! The overall objective is for the audience to know that GeoDjango exists, how to use it, and to promote creativity for their next project!
