A new series of workshops on data-intensive geo-spatial and environmental analysis on an open-source platform

These workshops will be offered on Thursdays (4-7pm) during the spring 2014 semester, and are designed to give an overview of methods for performing Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing analysis under the Linux Operating System.

Geo-data are getting larger and complex; consequently, their analysis requires new capabilities both in computer hardware and programming skills. To acquire these skills, we will use programming languages that integrate modern Open Source geo-libraries in a stable Linux environment to build complex and dynamic workflows.
