Brendan Collins of makepath was excited to present Datashader at Carto’s Spatial Data Science Conference as part of interactive workshops hosted at NYU’s Center for Urban Science And Progress (CUSP) in Brooklyn, NY.
For those unfamiliar, Datashader is a rasterization pipeline for automating the process of creating meaningful representations of large amounts of data. Open-source since inception, Datashader is general enough to apply across many disciplines while also catering to the Spatial Data Science / GIS community.
With the recent addition of a spatial module, Datashader provides common spatial functionality including zonal statistics, terrain illumination (hillshade), and proximity analysis.
Special thanks to Anaconda, James Bednar, and the HoloViz team for including us in this amazing project.
