Clean and fast and geospatial raster I/O for Python programmers who use Numpy
Rasterio reads and writes geospatial raster datasets.
Rasterio employs GDAL under the hood for file I/O and raster formatting. Its functions typically accept and return Numpy ndarrays. Rasterio is designed to make working with geospatial raster data more productive and more fun.
Rasterio is pronounced raw-STIER-ee-oh.
