Since almost all industries are more or less connected to Location and mapping, it is important to spread awareness and literate developers to understand different aspects of the GIS (Geographic Information System) industry.
The first Part of this series focuses on different GIS Data types and how to read them, This includes understanding different data formats such as Shapefiles, GeoJSON, WKT, CSV, TIFF, GeoTIFF, etc.. Users can actually read such files on their computers and be familiar with them.
The second part of this series focuses on geospatial analysis with python. Users will first practice working with some core GIS functionalities using GDAL and OGR on the terminal (and later in python). After this, users will be familiarised with the most widely used geospatial python libraries such as pandas, geopandas, fiona, shapely, matplotlib, PySAL, rasterio.

Complete Series is divided into the following sub-topics :
1. Introduction and quick walkthrough of Python
2. Understanding Most widely used python packages ( NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib)
3. Introduction and Installation of all Geospatial libraries in computer and in python environment
4. Working with GDAL and OGR capabilities
5. Vector data analysis and visualization
6. Working with Spatial databases n a python notebook
7. Raster Data analysis and visualization

Pre-requisite for this workshop:
1. Basic knowledge of GIS and GIS Data formats
