Important note: size of the repository is big (approx. 100 MB), so please download it at home.
For this workshop, you’ll need:
- Python 3
- Pandas (for data analysis)
- Jupyter Notebook (for interactive work)
- Matplotlib and Plot.ly (they draw charts), please install
- Folium (draws maps better than Plotly)
- XLRD (reads Excel files - just in case)
- geojson (to edit GeoJSON file)
If you already have Python 3 (plain or Anaconda), just install these PIP packages:
jupyter pandas matplotlib plotly==3.7.1 folium xlrd geojson
If not, follow next steps.
Install Python 3. You can follow the tutorial at realpython.com.
Important - If your Windows user name contains spaces or non-english characters (háčky, čárky, кириллица), choose “Customize installation” and choose path that will be outside of “C:\Users\Your name”. Otherwise, some packages might not install properly.
Note: In Linux, you might need to install
pip extra. In Ubuntu, use
sudo apt install python3-pip.
In console, run
pip3 install --upgrade jupyter pandas matplotlib plotly==3.7.1 folium xlrd geojson
Tip: In Windows, you can start console by pressing the Win key, then typing cmd. You copy into the console with right mouse button.
Installation should finish with words
Successfully installed and a list of many packages
and their versions.
If the installation finishes differently, you’re probably missing something in system and you need to install it. The error message will contain some hints that you can google.
