GeoPandas: The easy way to work with spatial data in Python
July 12, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Do you use pandas for data manipulation? Do you work with spatial data? GeoPandas is the spatial extension of pandas in python. The goal of GeoPandas is to make working with geospatial data in python easier. It combines the capabilities of pandas, shapely and fiona. GeoPandas enables you to easily do operations in python using dataframe like types that would otherwise require a spatial database such as PostGIS. This workshop will cover how to read/write shapefiles, geojson files, spatial joins and a host of other standard spatial operations all within the confines of geopandas. The workshop is intended for users with basic Python, pandas and GIS knowledge. Anaconda Python 3.5 will be used.
