    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. In the second phase, we introduce PyQGIS - the python libraries of QGIS that allows the integration of GIS functionalities in your python code or your python application, so that you may even create your own Python Plugin around a particular GIS functionality
