“Python Geospatial Analysis Essentials”

Erik Westra (2015)

Process, analyze, and display geospatial data using Python libraries and related tools


  • Learn to build a complete geospatial application from scratch using Python
  • Create good-looking maps based on the results of your analysis
  • This is a fast-paced guide to help you explore the key concepts of geospatial to obtain high quality spatial data



Primarily I am a social scientist and data wrangler on topics of political violence and public opinion, but I have increasingly gotten into Python programming and development, particularly focusing on geographic analysis, image rendering/drawing/visualization, and user-friendly Tkinter GUI software building.
