2023 Winter Training: Open Source Geospatial Analysis using Python and GDAL

January 26, 2023, Pueblo, CO
Cost: $25 Member Discount Available

This training will cover installing Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) and Python and then using python to solve challenging spatial problems, including group by operation, writing geometries. Finding all addresses within x distance of a running line. Writing reports to csv. No longer should you need a 6 figure GIS software budget to do GIS work. With QGIS, Python and a little knowledge you can truly unlock GIS. We will also compare and contrast Esri cursors as looping through geometries using GDAL or Esri is similar.
Prerequisites: This course requires you to have taken an introductory Python course and at least one GIS course before. This course assumes that you can write a python for loop already.
