What you'll learn
  • Write basic Python scripts to automate data
  • Use Python to interact with Postgres and PostGIS

  • Use Python to interact with ArcGIS

  • Use Python to geocode addresses and place them on a map
  • Perform standard GIS tasks using Python, and string your code together to perform many steps in a sequence
  • Place the results of your spatial analysis into chart or graphs using Python
Requirements
  • Students should have some basic familiarity with scripting.
  • The key to this class is not really being an excellent Python programmer, but rather knowing what you want to do with a GIS, and then finding the correct Python syntax to get the job done.
Description

If you are in the field of GIS, you're probably hearing everyone talking about Python, whether it's Arcpy in ArcGIS or special Python packages for doing things like geocoding.  In this course I am going to show you how to write Python code to perform spatial analysis.  The course isn't so much about learning Python, but rather how to integrate different spatial libraries within your Python code.  Using the course videos, you will work alongside of me to learn how I go about cobbling together Python code and various packages to solve spatial problems.  I'll provide you with all the data that I demonstrate in the course.

Of course, we'll have a brief overview of Python.  But after the brief refresher, we will dive into using Python with Open Source GIS and commercial GIS software.  Most courses only go over a single GIS program's use of Python.  But in this class, you'll get exposed to all kinds of different GIS software products, and learn how to tie them all together with Python.  

Who this course is for:
  • This course is meant for anyone who wants to learn how to automate GIS tasks using Python.
  • This course isn't focused on a single application's use of Python, but will provide identical solutions in Open Source GIS, ArcGIS, and other packages.
