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

This workshop is designed for attendees who have the following:

  • Solid basic computer skills
  • A strong interest on geographical data analyses
  • Laptops, with a minimum of 4GB RAM and 30GB free disk space, will be required
  • Previous experience and understanding in Geographic Information Systems and light scripting is helpful although not necessary
