  Description     : R-Tree spatial index for Python GIS

Rtree is a ctypes Python wrapper of libspatialindex that provides a
number of advanced spatial indexing features for the spatially curious
Python user. These features include:

 * Nearest neighbor search
 * Intersection search
 * Multi-dimensional indexes
 * Clustered indexes (store Python pickles directly with index entries)
 * Bulk loading
 * Deletion
 * Disk serialization
 * Custom storage implementation (to implement spatial indexing in ZODB,
   for example)

python-rtree is an optional dependency of imposm, and is probably best
maintained within the Debian GIS team along with imposm &
