Maps are cool and so is Python! It turns out they play well together too.

In this talk, we’ll learn about modern map making and the Geographic Information that powers it, as well as some of Python’s open source mapping libraries: geopandas, matplotlib, shapely, seaborn, and fiona. Then we’ll go through a fun mapping example together. No need for expensive mapping software, we’ll have everything we need in a Jupyter Notebook.

You’ll leave this talk with a new-found love for maps and the power to make your own. Happy mapping!
