Madrona, a new BSD-licensed framework

Postby amandataub on Thu Jul 12, 2012 12:53 pm

From Tim Welch at Ecotrust

Greetings folks, apologies for cross-posting, I know a lot of you guys are on the Portland list as well ;)

I'd like to introduce to you Madrona, a new BSD-licensed framework from Ecotrust for effective place-based decision making. To get right to it, Madrona sits on top of Django, PostGIS, JQuery and Mapnik providing some nice features for quickly putting together tools for decision support and spatial planning. Here's what it provides in a nutshell:

- A set of python django apps that provide models, views and templates for representing spatial features and solving spatial problems
- An automatic RESTful API for accessing spatial features in the KML and GeoJSON formats
- Robust model for sharing features between users and groups supporting collaborative design
- A collection of javascript libraries (based on JQuery) to provide a web-based interface to the API

Beyond the use of those core libraries, Madrona is pretty technology agnostic. You can pick and choose the features that you want and integrate what you need to. For example we have some Madrona-based tools using Google Earth and OpenLayers, some using Grass and PostGIS for analysis, ESRI and TileMill for map publishing, etc. Whatever technology best supports the specific spatial problem at hand, Madrona just wants to make it easier for you.

We have some cool features coming down the pipe on our projects and we're about as transparent as you can be so we encourage you to check out the website, try out the tutorial, fork the code, and hit us up through the mailing list or IRC.

Cheers,
Tim Welch
