It’s finally time to get started on our Django project and get to work in Python. We’ll start by creating a virtual environment, then install Django with Pip, and then enable GeoDjango.
Make sure you have the following items installed and working before you continue:
- PostgreSQL with PostGIS
shopsdatabase with PostGIS extension; and
- Our geographic drivers, either installed on their own or as part of QGIS.
With that foundation in place you’re ready to start the web server portion of your project using the Django and GeoDjango frameworks.
