Computer programming is becoming an increasingly important skill for people working with urban informatics, big data, and smart cities as it enables professionals to: save time by automating repetitive tasks, accurately document and quickly repeat or modify analytical processes, and ask questions that could not be asked using pre-built software. This course teaches how to automate GIS tasks in the context of urban issues using Python scripting language. This course dedicates time to programming fundamentals so that skills learned can be applied to languages other than Python. Therefore, another benefit from this course is increased ability to adapt to new technologies and programming languages.
