This course will introduce the participants to the nascent field of Geographic Data Science using the industry standard, the Python programming language. We will cover the key steps involved in solving practical problems with spatial data: design, manipulation, exploration, and modelling. These topics will be explored from a “hands-on” perspective using a modern Python stack (e.g. geopandas, seaborn, scikit-learn, PySAL), and examples from real-world spatial and tabular data. We will start with an overview of the main ways to access…
