Clean and preprocess geolocation data for clustering
Visualize geolocation data interactively using Python
Cluster this data ranging from simple to more advanced methods, and evaluate these clustering algorithms
In this 1.5-hour long project, you will learn how to clean and preprocess geolocation data for clustering. You will learn how to export this data into an interactive file that can be better understood for the data. You will learn how to cluster initially with a K-Means approach, before using a more complicated density-based algorithm, DBSCAN. We will discuss how to evaluate these models, and offer improvements to DBSCAN with the introduction of HDBSCAN. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
An introduction to the problem, as well as basic exploratory data analysis and visualizations
Visualizing geographical data in a more meaningful and interactive way
Methods of evaluating the strength of a clustering algorithm
Theory behind K-Means, and how to use it for our problem
Introduction to density-based clustering approaches, and how to use DBSCAN
Introduction to HDBSCAN, to alleviate constraints of classical DBSCAN
A simple method to address outliers classified by density-based models.
Your workspace is a cloud desktop right in your browser, no download required

It would be better if there was no time limit to the project on VM as the VM was too slow.Rest the instructor was awesome ,content was perfect and whatever he taught was very well understood.
It is very interactive and informative course. The instructor is patient in explaining almost every cell of code. I thoroughly enjoyed the course divided in chunks.
Thanks a lot, It was a short, quick and very useful project learning experience. Hope you will provide more geospatial data analysis projects in future soon.
Nice hands-on course to get introduced with the some popular clustering approaches like k-means, DBSCAN, HDBSCAN etc.
What will I get if I purchase a Guided Project?
By purchasing a Guided Project, you'll get everything you need to complete the Guided Project including access to a cloud desktop workspace through your web browser that contains the files and software you need to get started, plus step-by-step video instruction from a subject matter expert.
Are Guided Projects available on desktop and mobile?
Because your workspace contains a cloud desktop that is sized for a laptop or desktop computer, Guided Projects are not available on your mobile device.
Who are the instructors for Guided Projects?
Guided Project instructors are subject matter experts who have experience in the skill, tool or domain of their project and are passionate about sharing their knowledge to impact millions of learners around the world.
Can I download the work from my Guided Project after I complete it?
You can download and keep any of your created files from the Guided Project. To do so, you can use the “File Browser” feature while you are accessing your cloud desktop.
What is the refund policy?
Is financial aid available?
Financial aid is not available for Guided Projects.
Can I audit a Guided Project and watch the video portion for free?
Auditing is not available for Guided Projects.
How much experience do I need to do this Guided Project?
At the top of the page, you can press on the experience level for this Guided Project to view any knowledge prerequisites. For every level of Guided Project, your instructor will walk you through step-by-step.
Can I complete this Guided Project right through my web browser, instead of installing special software?
Yes, everything you need to complete your Guided Project will be available in a cloud desktop that is available in your browser.
What is the learning experience like with Guided Projects?
You'll learn by doing through completing tasks in a split-screen environment directly in your browser. On the left side of the screen, you'll complete the task in your workspace. On the right side of the screen, you'll watch an instructor walk you through the project, step-by-step.
