On this course, students will be introduced to an array of powerful open-source geocomputation tools and machine learning methodologies under the Linux environment. Students who have never been exposed to programming under Linux will reach a level where they feel confident in using advanced open source data processing routines. Those with a programming background will find the course beneficial in enhancing their skills for modelling and coding. Our aim is to equip attendees with powerful tools and endow them with the ability to continue independent development. The skills acquired on this course will be beneficial, not only for GIS applications but for general data processing and applied statistical computing in a number of fields. These skills lay the foundation for career development as a geographic data scientist.
