    Python for Geographic Information System (GIS)

    Workshop (Online, Bristol, and Bath) 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.

    QGIS for Geographic Information System

    Workshop (Online, Bristol, and Bath) 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. QGIS functions as geographic information system (GIS) software, allowing users to analyze and edit spatial information, in addition to composing and exporting graphical maps. QGIS supports both raster and vector layers; vector data is stored as either point, line, or polygon features. Multiple formats of raster images are supported, and the software can georeference images. To summarize it allows the users to Create, edit, visualise, analyse and publish geospatial information on Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD. This program, in its first phase, introduces the QGIS interface for general usage.

    Aseptic Processing: Principles in Practice

    Short course (Durham and Varies) by Honeyman · £1560 · Current

    It is well understood that sterility of an aseptic product cannot be determined by direct assessment of the finished product. Therefore, microbiological safety of the product can only be achieved by careful assessment of the hazards and control measures in place to provide the confidence that the items are safe for the patient and fit for use. Historically aseptic processes have relied heavily on monitoring of the environment, air, surfaces and personnel to verify the success of the process. However, modern aseptic processes require a more holistic assessment of all the protective measures in place within the process and the complex interaction between these control measures, this approach is fully covered within this course. We guarantee that on completion of this course, with the knowledge gained, you will look at aseptic processing from a new perspective.

    Land in Focus – Agriculture & Food

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) and EO College · Free · Current

    Forests are responsible for supporting essential life processes, from purifying the air we breathe to maintaining healthy soils and clean water sources. Around the world, communities rely on the ecosystem services provided by forests to support their livelihoods. However, deforestation and forest degradation are threatening forest ecosystems worldwide, thus disturbing the climate change mitigation which forests provide, and which we desperately need. Using remote sensing satellites and techniques, we are able to map and monitor forests. This enables us to view changes in forest cover, alert authorities about deforestation events, and monitor the relationship between forests and greenhouse gasses (GHG’s). In this course, you will learn about the drivers of deforestation as well as how satellites and time series disturbance detection methods can identify deforestation events, even in areas masked by clouds. In the final lesson on Biomass Estimation, you will learn why tracking biomass is important, how it’s done, and how to overcome inaccuracies when estimating biomass.
