Python Programming in GIS


This course both deals with basic Python programming, and how Python programming can be linked to, and used in, a geographical information system. After introduction and basic Python programming the student learns to program and visualize vector- as well as raster-based examples in a GIS environment. Many different components in Python programming, from input, via algorithm programming, to debugging, are discussed within the course.

Note that this course can only be taken as part of the iGEON paster program.
