About the Earth Analytics Python Course

Earth analytics is an intermediate, multidisciplinary course that addresses major questions in Earth science and teaches students to use the analytical tools necessary to undertake exploration of heterogeneous ‘big scientific data’. This course is designed for graduate students and students participating in the Earth Data Analytics Professional Certificate.

Course Overview

Throughout the course we will use computationally intensive techniques to address scientific questions. We will use a suite of different types of publicly available data including:

  • Satellite and airborne lidar and spectral remote sensing data,
  • Data collected using distributed in situ (on the ground) sensor networks
  • Social media data, and
  • Basic demographic data.

This course is technical. We will use the Python scientific programming environment and the Jupyter graphical interface to work with data.
