PySAL: Open Source Python Library for Spatial Analytical Functions

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: PySAL: Open Source Python Library for Spatial Analytical Functions grew out of a collaborative effort spearheaded by Professor Sergio Rey and Luc Anselin, Walter Isard Chair and Director of the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning. The project integrates two analytical tools, STARS and PySpace, that were developed separately by the two researchers prior to their arrival at ASU.

PySAL provides a suite of spatial analytical methods that developers can incorporate into their own application development, and that spatial analysts may customize to further their research. The PySAL tools are programmed in the Python language, which is increasingly used in geographic information systems.
