Chapter Three - Spatial Vector Data Processing in Python
In this chapter, you will learn how process vector data including how to reproject data to a different coordinate reference system (CRS), clip data to a specified boundary, and join data based on spatial location and attributes.
After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
- Identify the CRS of a spatial dataset and reproject it to another CRS in Python.
- Clip a spatial vector point and line layer to the spatial extent of a polygon layer in Python using geopandas.
- Dissolve polygons based upon an attribute in Python using geopandas.
- Join spatial attributes from one shapefile to another in Python using geopandas.
