Abstract

I will give a short, example-driven introduction to GeoPandas, a Python library for manipulating spatial data without a spatial database. Motivated by answering a specific question about a specific NZ data set, i will cover reading and writing files, managing projections, geometric operations, and merging data. By the end of the tutorial, you will have a rough idea about the capabilities of GeoPandas and whether it can help you in your projects.
