    149149[http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ GDAL/OGR] is an excellent open source geospatial library that support features such as coordinate transformations and reading/writing ''both'' vector (e.g., SHP) and raster (e.g., GeoTIFF) geographic data -- however, !GeoDjango does not yet support GDAL's raster capabilities.  Installation of GDAL is ''highly recommended'' because some features (e.g., a large number of `SpatialRefSys` model routines and the `LayerMapping` utility) require GDAL capabilities; however GDAL is not required for core functionality like spatial queries.
