This is an online version of the book “Introduction to Python for Geographic Data Analysis”, in which we introduce the basics of Python programming and geographic data analysis for all “geo-minded” people (geographers, geologists and others using spatial data). A physical copy of the book will be published later by CRC Press (Taylor & Francis Group). The contents of the book will be developed and shared freely online at pythongis.org licensed under Creative Commons 4.0.
