DAY 5: The Geo-Computation and Environmental Analysis Workshop
Registration is required. Please register at Eventbrite registration.
Instructor: Giuseppe Amatulli, Ph.D., Research Scientist in GeoComputation and Spatial Science.
This workshop will guides students through the use of a command line interface using advanced open source data processing routines for geo-computation in Linux environment.
Software Used: Bash, AWK, Python, GRASS, QGIS, GDAL/OGR, R, PKtools, under Linux Enviroment.
This workshop covers:
- Review the detailed agenda at the workshop website.
- Bash scripts to automate many common geo-data processing tasks such as cropping and re-projecting, mosaicing, and filtering images
- Examples of cropping, re-projecting, mosaicing, filtering and supervised/unsupervised classification
- Raster and Vector manipulation using GRASS
- The use of R and python for spatial analysis
Before you come
