Topic outline

  • Coding for EO (Python & R)

    Webinar with Steffen Kothe (DWD), Danny Parsons (IDEMS International); Co-instructors: Hayley Evers-King (EUMETSAT), Oliver Clements (PML)

    8 December 2021; 12:00 UTC; Register here

    This course is aimed at demystifying Earth Observation satellite data use through code. The course will focus on the flow that is used, regardless of programming language, to produce statistics or imagery from raw data files. We will also highlight resources that are available in multiple programming languages to further your exploration of coding for EO.  

    In the short course we will use python and R. However, the principles can be applied to many other programming languages.
    You will learn the basic principles of coding with gridded EO data: Opening a file, plotting a map, do calculations and plot the results.
