Sentinel-5P and xarray

I’ve written about Sentinel-5P several times in the past. You can check these posts out below: Why is Sentinel-5P important? Sentinel-5P and Python The Sentinel-5P and Python post is an outline on how to read in a Sentinel-5P netcdf file and plot it. The notebook (code) is available here. I wanted to expand on this… Read More »Sentinel-5P and xarray

Ridge map plots using Python

I saw this tweet on May 1st: Inspired by @ZachACole's beautiful illustrations and @jakevdp's pulsar plots, I just released a library to make "ridge elevation plots" with Python and @matplotlib. Let me know if you make something nice! https://t.co/X3XLnA6qAM pic.twitter.com/UfApYUDTH8 — Colin Carroll (@colindcarroll) May 1, 2019 I’ve seen these plots created before and find… Read More »Ridge map plots using Python

Python Workshop at GRSG

  • blog
Last week I attended the annual GRSG conference (Geological Remote Sensing Group) in London. At the GRSG conference a great deal is crammed into 3 days – talks, papers, networking and workshops. This year I put together a brief workshop on Python for image processing. If you’d like the notebook that I presented you can… Read More »Python Workshop at GRSG

Community GBDX Notebooks

  • blog
GBDX notebooks are a great way of acessing a vast array of satellite data. You can get yourself a trial account here: https://notebooks.geobigdata.io/ No more downloading satellite imagery, just process it in the cloud. When you think about the sheer volume of satellite data that Digital Globe has and its size to download, processing it… Read More »Community GBDX Notebooks

Python for Geospatial work flows part 2: Use Jupyter Notebooks

  • blog
In part 1 I looked at how to set up a Python 3 environment for use with Geospatial Workflows. If you want to recap take a look here In part 2 we will look at Jupyter Notebooks. Project Jupyter exists to develop open-source software, open-standards, and services for interactive computing across dozens of programming languages.… Read More »Python for Geospatial work flows part 2: Use Jupyter Notebooks

Colaboratory notebooks and GDAL

  • blog
Last year I heard about Colaboratory by Google and, now that I am using Jupyter Notebooks, it seems the perfect opportunity to explore it further. I previously wrote about how using Jupyter Notebooks is a perfect match for Satellite imagery processing. If you would like to read about that then the post is here. Otherwise,… Read More »Colaboratory notebooks and GDAL

How many Shapefiles on my computer?

  • blog
If you work with Geospatial software you cannot ignore the Shapefile. Whatever your thoughts on them (and it does polarise opinion in the GIS world; look for #Teamshapefile or #switchfromshapefile), I feel that I am ultimately driven by whatever a client would prefer. More often than not that is a preference for a Shapefile. FME… Read More »How many Shapefiles on my computer?
