Spatial Analysis Meets Data Science

Alberto Nieto, Shairoz Sohail, Shannon Kalisky


Location matters in every problem you are trying to solve, and a geographic approach is often crucial to extracting meaning from data. In this workshop, learn about ArcGIS Notebooks, a built-in Python-scripting environment in web GIS (geographic information systems) that puts the power of spatial algorithms and analysis tools into the hands of problem solvers. With ArcGIS Notebooks, you can find and prepare data, develop iterative analysis workflows, train and optimize models, build information products, share results, and collaborate with the rest of your organization. You'll learn how: - Spatial can play a role in your data science notebooks - Ready-to-use datasets can augment your analysis - To visualize your analysis in beautiful maps - Train and do inferencing with a deep learning model on geospatial data
