Create Thematic Maps with Python
April 19, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001A
Everybody loves maps. Learn how to create thematic maps in Python using matplotlib for export for use in reports and publications. We’ll cover how to produce the most common thematic maps (dot, proportional and the ever-popular choropleth, etc.) using real-world data. See a choropleth example at http://publications.michigantrafficcrashfacts.org/2015/Deer.pdf. The workshop is intended for users with at least basic Python knowledge. Knowledge of GIS is also helpful but not necessary. Anaconda Python 3.5 will be used.
