For questions about using GeoPandas in Python

The goal of GeoPandas is to make working with geospatial data in Python easier. It combines the capabilities of Pandas and Shapely, providing geospatial operations in pandas and a high-level interface to multiple geometries to shapely. GeoPandas enables you to easily do operations in python that would otherwise require a spatial database such as PostGIS.

Geometric operations are performed by Shapely. Geopandas further depends on Fiona for file access and Matplotlib for plotting.
