I use Python to automate GIS vector and raster processing, to generate
and translate metadata, and to build repository ingest objects to feed
a digital archive.  I'm a librarian and coordinate a federally funded
research project, http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/ncgdap/  We also have
another Python developer in the library who use it to process data and
metadate for various library catalog functions.
