8 tips using GeoPandas and Python for Geospatial People

  • blog
GeoPandas is great. If you are learning Geospatial Programming and work with vector data then you could do alot worse than giving GeoPandas a go. I’ve written a little about GeoPandas before; so first a couple of links. Installing a Python Geospatial work environment that includes GeoPandas: Python for Geospatial work flows part 1: Use… Read More »8 tips using GeoPandas and Python for Geospatial People

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
