Making Maps with Python @ NACIS2019

Abstract

In this presentation we will go over some open source tools available in the python ecosystem for geographic data visualization and analysis. We will also go over a couple open data portals to access geographic data for the United States and other countries. We will then explore how a social scientist may typically approach a data analysis project using these tools and data to extract insights.
