A pluggable GeoDjango app with the boundaries of United States counties. Geography, loosely coupled.


* A ready-to-serve model with all the counties in the United States
* Geometry fields for three of the most common SRIDs.
* Simplified geometry fields that thin down the data and make it easier to display many polygons on a single map.
* A read-only admin for reviewing the data
* Templates that show how the counties can be displayed with common browser-based mapping libraries.
