• Data Science - Python and Pandas

    Geovation

    --------------- PLEASE NOTE: This is a rerun of the Data Science - Python and Pandas workshop held on 26th Feb --------------- Pandas is one of the main Python libraries for manipulating and analysing structured data and one of the first things to learn if you want to get started with data science. This workshop is an introduction to Pandas for beginners where you will learn about: - Jupyter notebooks - Pandas data structures - Transforming and exploring data - Visualising data After an introduction to each of the subjects there will be some exercises to practice what you have learned. Nice to have is some knowledge of Python, but you should be able to follow along without as well. Please bring a laptop as this is a hands-on workshop. We will use IBM Watson Studio to go through the exercises, so there is no need to install anything beforehand. Agenda: 18.30 - 19.00: Registration, Food, Drinks and Networking 19.00 - 19.15: Short introduction 19.15 - 21.00: Hands on workshop Speakers: Margriet - Developer Advocate (@MargrietGr) Yamini - Developer Advocate (@yaminigrao)

  • Explore UK Crime Data with Pandas and Geopandas

    In this workshop you will learn how to expand your Python data analysis skills to geospatial data. The workshop is aimed at people who are interested in data science and data analysis. If you are interested in this workshop, but have not used Pandas before you should be able to follow along if you read this 10 minute tutorial on Pandas before the workshop: http://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/getting_started/10min.html During the workshop we will analyse UK Crime Data with Pandas and GeoPandas in a Jupyter notebook. We first will look at the properties of geospatial data and explore the different commands. After you have learned the basics we will go through some exercises analysing the UK Crime Data to explore patterns and trends and create a few maps of crime rates in London. Please bring a laptop as this is a hands-on workshop.
