Fiona provides uncomplicated Python interfaces to functions in OGR, the best
open source C/C++ library for reading and writing geographic vector data.
Fiona is designed to be simple and dependable. It focuses on reading and
writing data in standard Python IO style, and relies upon familiar Python types
and protocols such as files, dictionaries, mappings, and iterators instead of
classes specific to OGR. Fiona can read and write real-world data using
multi-layered GIS formats and zipped virtual file systems and integrates
readily with other Python GIS packages such as pyproj, Rtree and Shapely.
