Fields

Provides a GeometryField, which is a subclass of Django Rest Framework (from now on DRF) WritableField. This field handles GeoDjango geometry fields, providing custom to_native and from_native methods for GeoJSON input/output.

Serializers

GeoModelSerializer

Provides a GeoModelSerializer, which is a sublass of DRF ModelSerializer. This serializer updates the field_mapping dictionary to include field mapping of GeoDjango geometry fields to the above GeometryField.

For example, the following model:

class Location(models.Model):
    """
    A model which holds information about a particular location
    """
    address = models.Charfield(max_length=255)
    city = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    state = models.CharField(max_length=100)
    point = models.PointField()

By default, the DRF ModelSerializer will output:

{
    "id": 1,
    "address": "742 Evergreen Terrace",
    "city":  "Springfield",
    "state": "Oregon",
    "point": "POINT(-123.0208 44.0464)"
}

In contrast, the GeoModelSerizalizer will output:

{
    "id": 1,
    "address": "742 Evergreen Terrace",
    "city":  "Springfield",
    "state": "Oregon",
    "point": {
        "type": "Point",
        "coordinates": [-123.0208, 44.0464],
    }
}

GeoFeatureModelSerializer

GeoFeatureModelSerializer is a subclass of GeoModelSerializer which will output data in a format that is GeoJSON compatible. Using the above example, the GeoFeatureModelSerializer will output:

 {
    "id": 1,
    "type": "Feature",
    "geometry": {
        "point": {
            "type": "Point",
            "coordinates": [-123.0208, 44.0464],
        },
    },
    "properties": {
        "address": "742 Evergreen Terrace",
        "city":  "Springfield",
        "state": "Oregon"
    }
}

If you are serializing an object list, GeoFeatureModelSerializer will create a FeatureCollection:

(NOTE: This currenty does not work with the default pagination serializer)

{
    "type": "FeatureCollection",
    "features": [
    {
        "id": 1
        "type": "Feature",
        "geometry": {
            "point": {
                "type": "Point",
                "coordinates": [-123.0208, 44.0464],
            }
        },
        "properties": {
            "address": "742 Evergreen Terrace",
            "city":  "Springfield",
            "state": "Oregon",
        }
    }
    {
        "id": 2,
        "type": "Feature",
        "geometry": {
            "point": {
                "type": "Point",
                "coordinates": [-123.0208, 44.0489],
            },
        },
        "properties": {
            "address": "744 Evergreen Terrace",
            "city":  "Springfield",
            "state": "Oregon"
        }
    }
}

GeoFeatureModelSerializer requires you to define a ``geo_field`` to be serialized as the "geometry". For example:

class LocationSerializer(GeoFeatureModelSerializer):
    """ A class to serialize locations as GeoJSON compatible data """

    class Meta:
        model = Location
        geo_field = "point"

        # you can also explicitly declare which fields you want to include
        # as with a ModelSerializer.
        fields = ('id', 'address', 'city', 'state')

The primary key of the model (usually the "id" attribute) is automatically put outside the "properties" object (before "type") unless ``id_field`` is set to False:

class LocationSerializer(GeoFeatureModelSerializer):

    class Meta:
        model = Location
        geo_field = "point"
        id_field = False
        fields = ('id', 'address', 'city', 'state')

You could also set the ``id_field`` to some other unique field in your model, like "slug":

class LocationSerializer(GeoFeatureModelSerializer):

    class Meta:
        model = Location
        geo_field = "point"
        id_field = "slug"
        fields = ('slug', 'address', 'city', 'state')

Filters

We provide a GeometryFilter field as well as a GeometryFilterSet for usage with django_filter. You simply provide, in the query string, one of the textual types supported by GEOSGeometry. By default, this includes WKT, HEXEWKB, WKB (in a buffer), and GeoJSON.

GeometryFilter

from rest_framework_gis.filters import GeoFilterSet

class RegionFilter(GeoFilterSet):
    slug = filters.CharFilter(name='slug', lookup_type='istartswith')
    contains_geom = filters.GeometryFilter(name='geom', lookup_type='contains')

    class Meta:
        model = Region

We can then filter in the URL, using GeoJSON, and we will perform a __contains geometry lookup, e.g. /region/?contains_geom={ "type": "Point", "coordinates": [ -123.26436996459961, 44.564178042345375 ] }.

GeoFilterSet

The GeoFilterSet provides a django_filter compatible FilterSet that will automatically create GeometryFilters for GeometryFields.

InBBOXFilter

Provides a InBBOXFilter, which is a subclass of DRF BaseFilterBackend. Filters a queryset to only those instances within a certain bounding box.

Running the tests

Assuming one has the dependencies installed (restframework and restframework_gis), and one of the Spatial Database server supported by GeoDjango is up and running:

python setup.py test

You might need to tweak the DB settings according to your DB configuration. You can copy the file local_settings.example.py to local_settings.py and change the DATABASES and/or INSTALLED_APPS directives there.

If you want to contribute you need to install the test app in a proper development environment.

These steps should do the trick:

  • create a spatial database named "django_restframework_gis"
  • create local_settings.py, eg: cp local_settings.example.py local_settings.py
  • tweak the DATABASES configuration directive according to your DB settings
  • optionally install olwidget with pip install olwidget
  • uncomment INSTALLED_APPS (remove olwidget if you did not install it)
  • run python manage.py syncdb
  • run python manage.py collectstatic
  • run python manage.py runserver
