MapScale is a Python tool for embarrassingly parallel python workflows. It works like Python’s built-in multiprocessing, except MapScale uses ZeroMQ messaging to create work servers. This lets you reduce overhead–workers are setup just once, and can be re-used with several map calls–and allows you to add workers from across the Internet.

MapScale is being developed at To install:

git clone
cd mapscale
python install

Note, you will need to also install pyzmq.
