Software Carpentry: Intermediate Python

September 29, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - September 30, 2021 @ 3:00 pm

The Geospatial Centroid and CSU Libraries are once again partnering with NASA DEVELOP to provide Software Carpentry workshops to CSU affiliates.

Introductory and Intermediate training sessions for Python and R will be held September 27 – 30, 2021, and presented remotely. Sessions run concurrently, so you may only register for one series. There are limited seats available for CSU affiliates.


If you have any further questions about the content of the workshops, feel free to email Dan Carver, Technical Manager, Geospatial Centroid (dan.carver@colostate.edu).

R and Python courses will be run currently so you can only select a single course.



Intermediate Python:  Sept 29 – Sept 30, 1pm – 3pm

Note: This lesson is designed to teach Python coders how to apply their skills to geospatial concepts. It
assumes an intermediate level of Python knowledge. If you are unfamiliar with the concepts listed
in the Introductory course, we recommend you enroll in the intro-level course.

Concepts covered:

  • Opening rasters
  • Saving rasters
  • Plotting rasters
  • Inspecting rasters
  • Utilizing the xarray, rioxarray, and geopandas libraries
  • Calculating zonal statistics [if there is enough time]
