Learn how to work with GIS in Python in a project-based workshop. The first half will cover reading and writing shapefiles and GeoTIFFs, converting between pixelLocations and geoLocations, extracting raster windows using shapefiles and creating a web application that displays nearby locations using PostgreSQL's GIS support and Google Maps. In the second half, you will work with GeoDjango and discover the architecture behind a production web application used in rural electricity planning and an image recognition system that finds houses in rural satellite images.
