Spatial Data Analysis with PySAL

Workshop Description

A unique feature of this tutorial is the use of Python based software tools for spatial data analysis. Python is an object oriented scripting language that is gaining rapid adoption in the computational sciences. Since its initial release in July 2010, PySAL has been downloaded over 500,000 times. This two-part tutorial will first provide participants with an introduction to Python and related tools for spatial and regional analysis. In the second part of the tutorial participants will learn version 1.14 of PySAL applied to spatial and regional analysis. Part I is thus designed for participants with no prior Python experience, while the second part assumes knowledge of materials covered in Part I.
