KurzbeschreibungThe course communicates the basics of the programming language Python and gives a general introduction into the geoprocessing framework of ArcGIS. In addition various Python libraries (numyp, Scipy, GDAL, statsmodels, pandas, Jupyter Notebook) will be introduced which increase the functional range of the geoprocessing framework substantially.
LernzielThe students learn the basics of geographic data processing based on the programming language Python and ArcGIS (arcpy). They get the ability to implement their own processing sequences and models for geoprocessing. The students are able to integrate open source libraries in their Python scripts and know how the libraries are applied to spatial datasets.
InhaltThe course communicates a deepened understanding of the geoprocessing frameworks arcpy and covers basic language concepts of Python such as datatypes, control structures and functions. In addition the application of popular Python libraries in combination with spatial datasets will be shown.
SkriptLecture notes, exercises and worked out solutions to them will be provided.
