Welcome to my field notes!

Field notes are notes I leave myself as I go through my day to day work. The hope is that other people will also find these notes useful. Note that these notes are unfiltered and unverified.

Geospatial in Julia

For one of the trial art projects I needed to get a shapefile of the Philippines, I figured I would try to record my findings here.


  • This is a really easy place to extract standard shapefiles.


  • This takes inspiration from the {sf} R package so I need to study this => Turns out this is an RFC and is not the simple features interface I expected.
  • Luxor had to use Shapefile.jl but coming at it from that angle I just got super confused about how to transform data from one form to another.
