This workshop is offered as a live online class in a APAC and EMEA-friendly time. We will have 2 sessions of 4-hours each over 2 days. Click here to check the time in your local timezone.


Day 1: 3pm-7pm (4 hours)

Day 2: 3pm-7pm (4 hours)


This hands-on workshop covers Python from the very basics. Suitable for GIS practitioners with no programming background or python knowledge. The course will introduce participants to basic programming concepts, libraries for working with spatial data, geospatial APIs and techniques for building spatial data processing pipelines. 


Learning programming takes a lot of practice and months of continuous learning. This workshop intended to jump-start your journey by building a foundation and giving you the resources to become a proficient programmer.


Day 1: Getting familiar with Python

  • Setting up the environment using Anaconda and Jupyter notebooks
  • Programming basics - variables, data structures, functions, flow control
  • Reading and writing files (file I/O, csv)
  • Installing and using libraries (geopy)
  • Using web APIs (openrouteservice)


Day 2: Scaling Spatial Analysis 

  • Introduction to modern data science libraries (numpy, pandas)
  • Introduction to spatial analysis (geopandas)
  • Using raster data (rasterio)
  • Building scripts and automating workflows


Class Project:

  • Each participant will be assigned a project to complete within 2 weeks of the class. 1-1 mentoring and email support will be available during the project. (Estimated time for project: 4-8 hours)
  • Participants must complete the project to receive a completion certificate.


This class with NOT cover data visualization libraries. We will be using QGIS for visualizing the data.


About the Instructor:

Ujaval Gandhi is the founder of Spatial Thoughts. He has 15+ years of industry experience and experience building scalable data processing pipelines using Python at Google.
