Note: Read the prerequisites carefully. If you do not know intermediate pandas and intermediate Python you will not be able to understand this project. This guided project is for beginners who want to learn about geospatial data analysis using Python. You will analyze crime data from the Boston Police Department. It is a clean dataset, so you can get straight to generating interactive maps. Generate interactive maps in under an hour, just like this: https://vinitasilaparasetty.github.io/coursera-spatial-data-analysis/ By the end of this project, you will know how to generate maps using folium and analyze geospatial data using geovisualization. Then you will learn how to identify possible contributing factors for the problem statement. Special Features: 1) Learn a cool hack using one line of code to convert a jupyter notebook into a dashboard. 2) After you complete this project, you get a jupyter notebook of all the work you covered. It acts as a useful learning tool that you can refer to at any time in the future. 3) Examples for logical thinking required for geospatial data analysis are provided. 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.

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Generate marker clusters to indicate crime scenes.

  2. Generate heat map with circular markers to indicate unsafe districts

  3. Generate open street map with heatmap overlay for in depth analysis.

  4. Generate maps for specific crimes, to find possible causes for the particular crime.

  5. Convert jupyter notebook to dashboard.
