Introduction

Idea

My project will focus on porting the MapMint project from Python 2.x to Python 3.x.

MapMint is a web-based Geographic Information System (GIS), which is designed to facilitate deployment of Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI). In an SDI, geographic data, metadata, tools, and the users are connected in an interactive manner in a framework so as to use the spatial information in an efficient and flexible way.

MapMint combines various different software in a complete and coherent web mapping platform, thus helping users in building their own maps and web-applications. These web-services are built on top of the ZOO-Project.

Advantages from this project

1. Good Community support is available for Python 3.

2. Each newer version of Python continues to get faster with the runtime.

3. Python 2 is not traditionally a typed language. But Python 3 supports typing, that overcomes the development conflicts when working with new pieces of code.
