We just released the version 5 (rc) of GeoBases!
For those who do not know GeoBases, this project provides tools to play with geographical data. It also works with non-geographical data, except for map visualizations :).
There are embedded data sources in the project, but you can easily play with your own data in addition to the available ones. After data loading, you can:
- perform various types of queries (find this key, or find keys with this property) - make fuzzy searches based on string distance (find things roughly named like this) - make phonetic searches (find things sounding like this) - make geographical searches (find things next to this place) - get results on a map, or on a graph, or export it as csv data, or as a Python object
A few highlights of this new version (more details on https://github.com/opentraveldata/geobases/wiki/News): - join clauses (tutorial https://github.com/opentraveldata/geobases/wiki/Join-clauses-tutorial) - admin mode (tutorial https://github.com/opentraveldata/geobases/wiki/Admin-mode-tutorial) - learning mode - sub-indexes - phonetic search - graph display - better zsh autocomplete
We tried to improve the documentation with: - a wiki containing quickstart and tutorials - a Twitter account to answer questions - the API documentation on readthedocs.
