Название: Python for Geospatial Data Analysis: Theory, Tools, and Practice for Location Intelligence (Eighth Early Release) Автор: Bonny P. McClain Издательство: O’Reilly Media, Inc. Год: 2022-10-03 Страниц: 200 Язык: английский Формат: epub (true) Размер: 113.2 MB
In spatial data science, things in closer proximity to one another likely have more in common than things that are farther apart. With this practical book, geospatial professionals, data scientists, business analysts, geographers, geologists, and others familiar with data analysis and visualization will learn the fundamentals of spatial data analysis to gain a deeper understanding of their data questions.
Author Bonny P. McClain demonstrates why detecting and quantifying patterns in geospatial data is vital. Both proprietary and open source platforms allow you to process and visualize spatial information. This book is for people familiar with data analysis or visualization who are eager to explore geospatial integration with Python.
There are a variety of options in geographic information systems (GIS) software with pros and cons associated with all of them. I will mention a few when they come up, but although I have access to ArcGIS and QGIS (Quantum GIS), I like to give QGIS the main stage. It is truly open source, meaning that you don’t need different levels of licensing for access to all of the available tools. Since this book is intended for a wide level of interests, I want you to be able to explore all of the tools. Why explore geospatial data analysis with Python programming? Python has been embraced by the geospatial community and can be found integrated with a wide variety of commercial products such as ESRI, backend for other software packages such as QGIS and Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS), and Google Earth.
