Whole course is split into 4 thematic sections, all of them finished with a small project. First part is focusing on setting up your coding environment and introduction into spatial databases. Second part is focusing on vector data and dedicated Python libraries. Third part delves into manipulation of raster data. Last thematic section will focus on data acquisition workflow and shareability of your results. By completing the course, you will be able to:

Part 1

  • Quick refesh of necessary Python basics.
  • Learn how to effectively use Jupyter notebook.
  • Reading files and performing requests to APIs.
