JuliaGeo is a community that contains several related Julia packages for manipulating, querying, and processing geospatial geometry data. We aim to provide a common interface between geospatial packages. In 2022 there has been a big push to have parity with the Python geospatial packages, such as rasterio and geopandas. In this 10 minute talk, we'd like to show these improvements---both in code and documentation---during a tour of the geospatial ecosystem.
