Mon, April 12, 2021 - 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Remote (Zoom link forthcoming)


There are a lot of options to access and download geospatial data and find creative ways to map it. This workshop will introduce methods to downloading geospatial data using APIs and how to map them. Topics such as base maps and interactive mapping will also be covered to create visual tools that are applicable to multiple disciplines from the natural sciences to humanities. These techniques will be implemented using packages such as folium, contextily, and geopandas. Participants will be able to create meaningful visuals that combine multiple sources of data.

Prerequisites: D-Lab’s Python Fundamentals introductory series or equivalent knowledge. Basic knowledge of geospatial data is expected. 

NOTE: D-Lab workshops normally start 10 minutes after the scheduled start time (“Berkeley Time”). We recommend you log on at the start time to join the waiting room where hosts will message you further information.
