Lesson 4 overview

During this lesson we will learn a few really useful and commonly used GIS functionalities using Geopandas and PySAL.

  1. Data classification and re-classification

Learning goals

After this lesson’s lesson you should be able to:

  • learn about different classification schemes

  • reclassify data based on different criteria (custom or common classifiers).

  • merge data, i.e. join spatial and non-spatial datasets together, based on some common identifier.


Following materials are partly based on documentation of Geopandas, Pandas and pysal.
