Geospatial Python introduces the basics of the computer programming language, Python, as it applies to spatial data.  Python is rapidly becoming the primary language for application development because of the relatively short learning curve when compared to other programming languages, such as C/C++.   Along with the fundamentals of Python, workshop participants learn how to develop programs using the GDAL/OGR libraries, the foundation libraries used in most commercial and open source GIS software.  Workshop participants learn how to write simple Python programs, read and create spatial and non-spatial datasets, data queries, geoprocessing and spatial analysis.  Software and sample programs are included with course materials.
