Toelichting (Engels) The course is not a pure programming course, but has a rather strong focus on programming and scripting to solve geographical or spatial applied problems. During the course you will learn how to deal with both vector spatial data and raster data; such as satellite imagery used in remote sensing studies. The programming languages dealt with during the course are R and python. Professionals in private companies and research institutes are increasingly using scripting languages for applied spatial analysis. We notice that students still have a kind of 'scripting' barrier to overcome. Some students are afraid of scripting and others stick very closely to the examples given. We like to relax this attitude. From the perspective of an advanced course we like to change the cookbook approach in favor of a more explorative approach. Becoming more relaxed towards scripting and a more explorative approach means that some generic scripting principles must be known to create a 'core' script. On the other hand students have to learn which libraries are available for spatial data analysis and visualization and how these libraries can be used within the 'core' script.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
