1Anatomy of:
• XML (more specifically the RSS application of XML)
• Exploration of data formats available on Brisbane City Council Open Data
• Focus question: XML vs JSON – which is preferable?


XML (which is used to write RSS)


Feel free to investigate other geo-formats, such as Shapefiles (SHP), MapSource (GDB), ESRI, KML (for Google Earth) or KMZ (zipped KML), GeoJSON (for ArcGIS)

Python object (eg. Python dictionary) → json.dump() → JSON file .write()

Python object (eg. Python dictionary) → json.dumps() → JSON string

JSON file path → json.load() → Python object (eg. Python dictionary)

JSON string contents → json.loads() → Python object (eg. Python dictionary)

the s stands for string
