It is important to underscore what PySAL is, and is not, designed to do. First
and foremost, PySAL is a library in the fullest sense of the word. Developers
looking for a suite of spatial analytical methods that they can incorporate
into application development should feel at home using PySAL. Spatial analysts
who may be carrying out research projects requiring customized scripting,
extensive simulation analysis, or those seeking to advance the state of the art
in spatial analysis should also find PySAL to be a useful foundation for their
