Set Up QGIS
In this video you’ll continue installing your app components by adding geographic drivers that are part of QGIS.
Before starting this video, you should have PostgreSQL successfully installed with the PostGIS extension. You should have a new GIS enabled database set up named
shops. Make sure you remember your PostgreSQL super user account and password.
With our database finished you might be anxious to get your Django site started, and wired up to PostgreSQL with the ORM. With any other project that might be the next step, but in this case we will be using geographic data so we need some software in between.
Because Django will be using GeoDjango, we will need to install at least the following three dependencies:
These drivers help GeoDjango translate the map coordinates correctly and understand the projection used to create them.
