Explore UK Crime Data with Pandas and Geopandas
Explore UK Crime Data with Pandas and Geopandas

Abstract: 

In this workshop you will learn how to expand your Python data analysis skills to geospatial data. The workshop is aimed at software engineers, data scientists, and others who are interested in data science and data analysis.

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.
