Re-blog if you don’t want this guy anywhere near the Oval Office.
I mean he is free to visit like any citizen but yeah he shouldn’t be working there.
First, install the GDAL Complete framework (a packaged binary build that includes GDAL/OGR, GEOS, PROJ.4).
Download the GDAL Python package from PyPI. Untar it, cd to the new directory and execute the following:
CFLAGS=`/Library/Frameworks/GDAL.framework/Versions/1.8/Programs/gdal-config --cflags` LDFLAGS=`/Library/Frameworks/GDAL.framework/Versions/1.8/Programs/gdal-config --libs` python setup.py install
Now download the Shapely Python package from PyPI, untar, cd, then:
LDFLAGS=`/Library/Frameworks/GEOS.framework/Versions/3/unix/bin/geos-config --libs` CFLAGS=`/Library/Frameworks/GEOS.framework/Versions/3/unix/bin/geos-config --cflags` python setup.py install
Confirm that it worked by issuing:
python -c 'import osgeo; print osgeo.__version__'
python -c 'import shapely.speedups; print shapely.speedups.available'
Impressive OS archaeology. Points for the custom cursors and startup screens as animated GIFs (some with audio).

I love the idea that with 3D printers we can resurrect the obscure or forgotten sketches of past masters, cheaply, easily, for fun and exploration.
This gorgeous map of the United States was the winner of the “Best in Show” award at the annual competition of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society. Bought.
All elements—labels, borders, symbols, backgrounds—were positioned and styled entirely by hand by one cartographer, David Imus of Oregon.
The democratization and digitization of maps and geospatial data has been a boon for all, but a layout algorithm can never replace the hand and skill of a dedicated map-maker. Having worked with one such cartographer and seen up close the level of precision, knowledge, and taste brought to the domain, I can only hope that we neo-cartographer programmers strive for this quality of design.
