Wrap Up and Next Steps

Where to go from here?

We'll cover the following


We have now reached the end of our course.

In the first part, we began an exciting journey into the world of geospatial data. We started with basic concepts like data types, including raster and vector formats. We also looked at projections and coordinate reference systems, which are fundamental in geospatial analysis.

Moving on to the second part, we got hands-on experience with geospatial data. We learned how to import and export data, do filtering, and work with DataFrames. We also found out how to create shapes from tables and make them from scratch, building a strong base for what was coming next.

In the third part, we looked at more complex ways to work with geospatial data. We covered clipping, spatial data aggregation, making new shapes, moving and changing shapes, and more. We used a lot of examples to understand the basic tools in GIS that we can use for almost any geospatial task.

In the fourth part, our focus was on visually providing geospatial data. We made different types of maps, choropleth and multilayered maps, using GeoPandas. We also learned how to add context basemaps with Contextily and how to make interactive maps that can be zoomed in on and clicked on using Folium.

To wrap things up, we worked on a project that used many of these ideas. The project had a made-up scenario about public train transportation in New York City. In this project, we made many maps and gathered information using GIS to support decision-making reports.
