Description : Streaming ETL - geospatial ETL framework for Python 2
Stetl, streaming ETL, pronounced "staedl", is a lightweight ETL-framework
for the conversion of rich (as GML) geospatial data conversion.
It basically glues together existing parsing and transformation tools
like GDAL/OGR (ogr2ogr) and XSLT. By using native tools like libxml and
libxslt (via Python lxml) Stetl is speed-optimized.
Stetl has a similar design as Spring (Java) and other modern frameworks
based on IoC (Inversion of Control). A configuration file (in Python
config format) specifies your chain of ETL steps. This chain is formed
by a series of Python modules/objects and their parameters. These are
symbolically specified in the config file. You just invoke etl.py the
main program with a config file. The config file specifies the input
modules (e.g. PostGIS), transformers (e.g. XSLT) and outputs (e.g. a GML
file or even WFS-T a geospatial protocol to publish GML to a server).
Stetl is required for the TOP10NL ETL port of NLExtract, and the package
will be maintained within the Debian GIS team.
