Geospatial data science is a subset of data science that focuses on spatial data and its unique techniques. It is beyond creating maps and merely focusing on where things happen but instead incorporates spatial analysis and insights derived from spatial data. In this course, we lay the foundation for a career in Geospatial Data Science. You will get introduced with Geopandas, the workhorse of Geospatial data science Python libraries.
The topics covered in this course widely touch on some of the most used spatial technique in Geospatial data science. We will be learning how to read spatial data effectively, manipulate and process spatial data, and carry out spatial operations. A large portion of the course deals with spatial operations like Buffer analysis, Spatial joins and Nearest Neighbourhood analysis. Each video contains a brief overview of the topic and a walkthrough with code examples. We conclude each section Geospatial data science assignment and project, that will help you learn more effectively.
We will also cover spatial data visualization using both Geopandasa and other interactive libraries like Folium, IpyLeaflet and Plotly Express. We cover how to make stunning Geo visualization for the most widely used map types.
The final section covers some advance features including Geocoding, reverse geocoding, accessing OpenStreetMap data in Python and some advanced tips and tricks to process large Geospatial datasets.
At the end of this course, you will be able to perform most of Geospatial data science operations in Python and also build a strong foundational knowledge in Geospatial Python.
