Center for Data and Visualization Sciences (CDVS) Workshop Series

Some people who want to do spatial (geographic) analysis don't know GIS software such as ArcGIS Pro or QGIS, but do know R or Python. In this workshop, we will present a command-line, or code-driven, approach to working with geospatial data. This method offers several advantages over traditional GIS software that can make your work easier, faster, and more reproducible! We will share a showcase of spatial data science workflows that demonstrate the possibilities opened up by tools available from the command-line and scripting for processing, analyzing and visualizing data.
