Contemporary research in Analytical Geography has placed an increasing demand on the computational skills of its practitioners. The advances in spatial data analysis and geographical modeling have also largely out-paced the capabilities of standard statistical software. At the same time, the multidisciplinary nature of the spatial sciences often translates into the need to deal with disparate data sources, formats, and programming languages. As such, students undertaking research confront a challenging set of tasks seldom covered in an integrated fashion. This course addresses this need through: 1) general purpose programming in Python and 2) Python scripting in ArcGIS Pro.
