Introduction to GIS: Working with Spatial Data with Python

Introduction to GIS: Working with Spatial Data with Python Online

This 90-minute workshop will introduce participants to basic GIS functions and working with spatial data in Python.

Participants will learn:

  • What is GIS?
  • What is a Spatial or Coordinate Reference System?
  • What is spatial data? Explanation of common formats
  • What is geocoding?
  • How to perform an attribute join between spatial data and tabular data
  • How to perform a spatial join between points and polygons
  • How to create a choropleth map

No prior experience is necessary. Participants without Python coding experience can learn spatial data concepts, while gaining exposure to Python. Participants with prior knowledge of Python can have hands-on participatory experience.
