Welcome to Day Six!

Welcome to Day Six of the Earth Analytics Bootcamp! Today, you will practice working with the data structures used in this course: lists, numpy arrays and pandas dataframes. You will also practice submitting pull requests to Github repositories. Rather than reviewing lessons, you will complete a hands-on activity.

By completing the activity for today, you will practice:

  • Adding documentation to Jupyter Notebook using Markdown and Python comments
  • Creating Python lists
  • Downloading text files from Figshare.com
  • Importing text files (.txt, .csv) into numpy arrays and pandas dataframes
  • Selecting and summarizing data in numpy arrays and pandas dataframes

You will also learn how to:

  • Use indexing to insert values into Python lists
  • Manually create numpy arrays and pandas dataframes
