Location tracking with Django
Friday 11:15-12:15 UTC+2 in Workshop 1
A workshop to build Django mapping application that tracks coordinates from mobile device with GPS and stores them into db for further analysis with GeoDjango.
A workshop to setup and make an Django app that will use GeoDjango to store locations and show them on a map with Mapserver with custom styling and creating tool to query locations based on user current position.
Project skeleton and instructions can be found at https.//github.com/jtiai/dceu-geotracker/
Workshop will be splitted in the following parts:
- Setting up Django, GeoDjango, Postgis and map component (Leaflet)
- There will be instructions and startup repository to make workshop start faster
- Building the app itself (simple models and webpage to track and display coordinates)
Configuring Leaflet to read and display data from Django database
If time allows, showing example how very advanced GIS software works
Break-out sessions are expected to last around 60 minutes. They will have limited seats and will have a sign-up option provided on the ticketholder website, once the schedule is known.
