Jayson Delancey


Audience Level: Beginner to Intermediate Even if you are a seasoned Python wizard it takes some effort to get your bearings when working with geographical data.  In this workshop, we'll start with some beginner projects to build geospatial applications. - How to identify the location of an image file with PIL - How to find places on a map with NLTK - How to read/write geospatial file types with tools like geopandas - How to visualize point clouds from GPS traces or LiDAR data with PPTK - How to store and query vector tiles with XYZ By the end of our time together you will have gone from Hello World to having a roadmap for where to learn more about geospatial tools and techniques.
