Spaceland: access shapefiles in Python

Spaceland is a modern Python library for fast, Pythonic access to ESRI shapefiles.

Or, at least, that’s what it will be. While Spaceland is in active development it’s still early days and the library isn’t yet feature-complete. What it does support is reading dBase III files (for why this is important, see What’s a shapefile?).

Spaceland is developed on GitHub and contributions are welcome.
