Workshop: Visualizing Urban Data with Code
We’ve all seen the energy grades posted at the entrances of large buildings in New York City. But how does one building compare to its neighbor, or to buildings in other parts of the city? And how is the city doing overall? Are grades improving from year to year? Are there any interesting stories buried in the data?
Join Computational Designer Juan Francisco Saldarriaga for a workshop on mapmaking through programming. Python will be our language of choice, and we will introduce powerful packages like Pandas, Geopandas and Altair to explore geographic data. Our final product will be a Colab Notebook (similar to a Jupyter Notebook) with maps and graphs exploring the distribution of energy grades from 2020 and 2021 across the city and highlighting specific investigative leads.
No prior programming experience is required.
This workshop is planned to take place in person (516 Milstein) and online. A link to join via Zoom will be sent to registrants shortly before the event.
We look forward to seeing you there!
