Description

This course introduces students to the field of spatial data science and is designed to develop students' understanding of some fundamental algorithms and code libraries that are used to manipulate, analyse, and map spatial data, and to explore how they are implemented in software. Students will use Python and Javascript programming languages. The course is largely lab and project based, with context and theoretical frameworks presented in lectures and tutorials in order to guide hands-on development.
