We will use the geo-database configured in the previous tutorial, fill one of its table with world cities geocoordinates, and show these cities. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to use GeoDjango to build a web app that allows users to search for gigs and events near them. GeoDjango is Django module used for developing GIS web applications.

We can create a management command, and use the LayerMapping utility, along with our auto-generating mapping in our models file, to import the data.

Take a look at this tutorial using Leaflet instead of OpenLayers. Now, if we run our tests: Earlier, you used ogrinfo to examine the contents of the world borders shapefile. The second half is our mapping code using Leaflet. Raw queries When using raw queriesyou must wrap your geometry fields so that the field value can be recognized by GEOS: If you run the dev server again, you should see that the map widget in the admin is now provided by Google Maps, making it tutirial easier to identify the correct location of the venue.
