Re: Fiona 2.0 planning

Maybe regarding something we should think about is to have an additional iterator having GEOS objects instead of Geojson for the geometries of features. This would eliminate a conversion to geojson and then back to a geos for libraries such as geopandas. However, after a quick look, it looks like OGRGeometry::exportToGEOS ( is not available in the gdal c api.

Another issue, but completely unrelated to Fiona 2.0 is, that I think we are currently lacking consistent documentation / beginners guides among the different existing spatial python libraries.  I think this makes it harder for people starting and not having the greatest programming/python skills. Especially, as I have the impression that programming/computer science skills have not enough weight in classical GIS education.
