Learning data science on your own is tough...

...(ahem, it took me 6 years)

So here's some help.

5 Free Books to Cut Your Time In HALF.

Let's go! 🧵

#datascience #rstats #R Image
1. Mastering #Spark with #R

This book solves an important problem- what happens when your data gets too big?

For example, analyzing 100,000,000 time series.

Today, BF launches a new investigation on the deadly effects of border control in Niger. Over the past year we investigated the relation between bordering practices, spatial shifts in migrant trajectories and increased danger of crossing Niger’s Saharan desert.

A thread 🧵
In 2015, with the support of the European states and agencies, #Niger adopted a new Law on illegal trafficking of migrants. Law 2015-36 establishes new forms of #border control with the aim of thwarting #migration across Northern Niger to Libya. Image
Law 2015-36 has not stopped migrants' #mobility in the region but rather forced trajectories into more remote areas of the #desert, creating dangerous and often fatal conditions. Image

Tutorial thread Blender 3-D Population Density👥📊🗺️Maps through @KonturInc using #QGIS and #Blender....#esri users you can follow along too because it can be done in your software too #gischat #thread #geospatial ImageImageImageImage
So I would divide this tutorial into four parts
1. Data Gathering(with @KonturInc )
2. QGIS(Black map and Color Map)
3. Rendering in Blender(No geometry nodes)
4. QGIS or other softwares (final touches)
So @KonturInc is a really good geospatial data provider together with risk management solution provider who deal with a lot of things as shown in link below But we will focus today on Their wonderful population data

Tutorial thread Blender 3-D Maps🏔️🗺️🧵: In this tutorial I'm going to show how you can also create 3-D Maps like the one shown below. Using #QGIS and #Blender....#esri users you can follow along too because it can be done in your software too #gischat #thread #geospatial ImageImageImageImage
So I would divide this tutorial into four parts
1. Data Gathering(with @OpenTopography ) or DIVA
2. QGIS(Black map and Color Map)
3. Rendering in Blender(No geometry nodes)
4. QGIS or other softwares (final touches)
1. In data gathering I normally use @OpenTopography to download the DEM required for blending/rendering .....the 90m and 30m and 10m are key consideration when downloading dem for instance in small area 30m works well but in large areas 90m works best....

Compressed image formats are a great way to reduce file size without sacrificing image quality. There are several compressed image formats that are commonly used in GIS (Geographic Information System) applications. #gischat #geospatial #gis
ECW (Enhanced Compression Wavelet) is a proprietary compressed image format developed by ERDAS. It's commonly used for compressing large raster images, such as satellite imagery and aerial photography. ECW files can be handled by software ArcGIS, Global Mapper, and ERDAS Imagine.
MrSID (Multiresolution Seamless Image Database): LizardTech's proprietary format that is similar to ECW. It's commonly used for compressing large raster images and can be handled by software such as ArcGIS and Global Mapper.

Machine Learning (ML) algorithms have revolutionized spatial analysis, providing new insights into geographic data. Here's a list of popular ML algorithms used in #geospatial #DataScience
#DataScience #MachineLearning #SpatialAnalysis #gischat
K-means clustering is a popular unsupervised ML algorithm used for clustering and segmentation of spatial data. It's used to identify spatial patterns, group similar geographic features, and create thematic maps.
Random Forests is a supervised ML algorithm used for classification and regression tasks in Geospatial Data Science. It's used to predict land use, soil properties, and other geographic variables.

Your #geospatial portfolio is proof that you know & understand #GIS concepts, so how do you build one?

If you are wondering what kinds of projects you can do to populate your geospatial portfolio and also gain knowledge as you do them.

Do not look too far, open this thread.

The fundamental thing about projects in GIS terrain is that all your project must have a study area. A study area is a place within the earth surface that you choose to perform your analysis on. E.g Landslide Susceptibility mapping in "South Eastern Nigeria...
South east is my study area here.

So, all your projects must have that and that's at your discretion.

Now let's dive in ✈️

Tutorial Thread🧵 on how to create Climate maps using R Language specifically ClimateR🌧️🌤️ package created by Mike Johnson...In this tutorial I'm going to use The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦#gischat #cartography #GIS #geospatial #Remotesensing #dataviz #R #rspatial #mapping
So At first Climate R is package created specifically to deal with climate illustration ......So in order to get it working you have to Have Remote package already and you have to Install Using the codes below. Codes for installing Climate R
So after that were going prepare the Tempreture illustration in which they are three ways of illustrating Mean Tempreture(One map),Annual Tempreture(Mutiple Maps) and Monthly Tempreture.

Embarrassed by your #R code?

Here are 4 mistakes beginner R coders make AND how to avoid them.

#rstats #datascience
The reality is you aren't going to become a master R programmer over night.

But I see beginners making the same mistakes time and time again.

And they are easy to correct.

Here are the 4 most common mistakes and how to easily correct them.
1. Not using comments

This is a huge no-no.


Because comments help others understand your code INCLUDING future you.

I want to take a little time to discuss how we, @sparkgeo, consider the future geospatial market. I have been using a few tools to help me talk about ideas with my team: a strategic common language is really helpful. #strategicgeospatial
I share this content with my entire team. It’s critical we know what our purpose is, and why we are doing what we do. None of these tools solve anything, but they help us order complexity and see patterns. #strategicgeospatial
First, a quote.

2021-2022 Economic Survey (ES) uses remote sensing and #geospatial data ‘to track, compare
and represent longer term developments’. But when using remote sensing data, proper calibration, validation and visualisation are necessary. Else the data can be very misleading. 🧵
ES states that comparison of night time lights (NTL) between 2012 and 2021 provides “ interesting representation of the expansion of electricity supply..” apart from distribution of population, economic activity and ribbon developments.
But do the maps make sense? More than representing expansion of electricity, the maps represent the challenges of visualising satellite data. NTL data contains radiance values. The min and max radiance values used for visualisation can dramatically change the interpretation.
