JuliaGeo: A Fresh Approach to Geospatial Computing

Maarten Pronk and Martijn Visser

2018 saw the release of [Julia]( 1.0, a high-level, high-productivity programming language, with the performance of a low-level language like C. That means looping over all features or cells and applying your own functions is encouraged. The [JuliaGeo]( organization was first started in 2015 to provide support for working with geospatial data in the Julia programming language. JuliaGeo currently provides high-level APIs with comprehensive support for OSGeo libraries like GDAL, GEOS and PROJ. In this talk, we introduce Julia and the JuliaGeo packages, showcase interactive workflows, and talk about next steps.
