Geospatial analysis with Python
November 2, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Rackham Building, Earl Lewis Room, 3rd Floor East
This workshop will cover basic geospatial analysis in Python. Topics covered will include reading and writing various GIS file formats (shapefile, KML, geojson, csv), geocoding, common geometric operations like finding closest line to a point, point in polygon, spatial indexing and spatial joins etc. The workshop will focus solely on vector data (points, lines, polygons). The will be mostly accomplished using the Python modules: fiona, shapely, rtree (but not arcpy).
