While I think a majority of GDAL users are just using the library from
applications like OpenEV, MapServer or the utilities provided with
GDAL, there is significant use of Python going on too.

They are being committed to CVS under pymod/samples.  They can be browsed
live on the web at:


If you have entries you would like to submit, and if you don't have CVS
access, just email them to me or Andrey with a bit of a description to
include in the README.

Note, OGR/Python examples are also of interest.
