Python for Geographic Information System (GIS)

Workshop by NobleProg · £3900-5100 · Current

A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographic information science (GIScience) to refer to the academic discipline that studies geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of geoinformatics. The use of Python with GIS has substantially increased over the last two decades, particularly with the introduction of Python 2.0 series in 2000, which included many new programming features that made the language much easier to deploy. Since that time, Python has not only been utilized within commercial GIS such as products by Esri but also open source platforms, including as part of QGIS and GRASS. In fact, Python today is by far the most widely used language by GIS users and programmers. This program covers the usage of Python and its advance libraries like geopandas, pysal, bokeh and osmnx to implement your own GIS features. The program also covers introductory modules around ArcGIS API, and QGIS toolboox.

Advanced Geoinformatics

Short course by ITC (University of Twente) · €3850 (~£3446) · Past

Geo-spatial data is the major driver of today’s information society. Smartphones, satellites, and sensors are creating more Big Geo Data than ever. This data is used for an increasing number of scientific purposes that aim to benefit the world. It’s a matter of gathering, analyzing, distributing and visualizing the data to make it fit for specific use, e.g. in systems for improving agricultural practice or creating healthy cities. The technologies supporting these processes are at the core of geoinformatics. Effectively acquiring and efficiently managing these amounts of data takes more than skills. It also requires keeping pace with ongoing technological developments and understanding how to interpret them. The course Advanced Geoinformatics offers you the possibility to expand your competencies and skills in advanced data acquisition and information extraction methods or focus more on the integration of state-of-the-art methods in geospatial workflows. You will learn to design and develop algorithms, models, and tools to process geo-spatial data into reliable, actionable informatio
