Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free

This event will be a demonstration of how to generate topographic maps of New York City’s building rooftops by combining multiple large NYC Open Data datasets. We will present a detailed walkthrough of how to use the scientific/geospatial Python stack to produce customized maps. We will also discuss what tools to use to work with data that won’t fit in memory, and demonstrate how to combine vector and raster geospatial data. The end result will be topographic images of the heights of building rooftops above sea level, an interesting new way of visualizing New York’s iconic geography.
