#295 GIS + Python
Play • 57 min
Geography is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments. Often we think of maps, but maps are static. GIS gets interesting when you realize that we're studying and visualizing data flowing through these locations and communities.

In this episode, you'll meet Silas Toms. He's an author of several Python GIS books and the host of The Mappist Hour podcast. Are you ready to dive into GIS with Python?
