The main objective of this course is to provide a working knowledge (understanding and skills) of programming in Python. Python is a general-purpose open-source computer programming language used by thousands of developers around the world in areas as diverse as spatial modelling, internet scripting, user interfaces, product customization, etc. With its no-frills syntax and insightful command structure, the language is generally regarded as probably the easiest general programming language to learn. It is also recognized as an extremely powerful language, with more and more industrial-quality extension modules becoming available. Finally, it is one of the most suitable languages to use in hybrid contexts of databases, GIS, image processing and web applications. The course is relevant for anyone who wants to know how to program. The course demonstrates how to utilize programming in the geospatial domain and is therefore targeted at professionals from “geo” domains, such as GIS, remote sensing and geosciences.
