Version 5 is out and adds many new cool features to the project :)


We just released the new version 5 of GeoBases (RC).

For those who do not know GeoBases, this project provides tools to play with geographical data. It also works with non-geographical data, except for map visualizations :).

There are embedded data sources in the project, but you can easily play with your own data in addition to the available ones. After data loading, you can:

- perform various types of queries (find this key, or find keys with this property)

- make fuzzy searches based on string distance (find things roughly named like this)

- make phonetic searches (find things sounding like this)

- make geographical searches (find things next to this place)

- get results on a map, or on a graph, or export it as csv data, or as a Python object

A few highlights of this new version (more details on

- join clauses (tutorial

- admin mode (tutorial

- learning mode

- sub-indexes

- phonetic search

- graph display

- better zsh autocomplete

We tried to improve the documentation with:

- a wiki containing quickstart and tutorials

- a Twitter account to answer questions

- the API documentation on readthedocs
