Keeping in mind the Pythonic principle that “simple is better than complex” we'll see how to create a web map with the Python based web framework Django using its GeoDjango module, storing geographic data in your local database on which to run geospatial queries.

"A *map* in a website is the best way to make geographic data easily accessible to users because it represents, in a simple way, the information relating to a specific geographical area and is in fact used by many online services.

Implementing a web *map* can be complex and many adopt the strategy of using external services, but in most cases this strategy turns out to be a major data and cost management problem.

In this talk we'll see how to create a web *map* with the **Python** based web framework **Django** using its **GeoDjango** module, storing geographic data in your local database on which to run geospatial queries.
Through this intervention you can learn how to add a *map* on your website, starting from a simple *map* based on **Spatialite/SQLite** up to a more complex and interactive *map* based on **PostGIS/PostgreSQL**."
