My name is Stefanie Lumnitz and I am excited about developing a geo-visualization package in 2018’s Google Summer of Code. In my daily life, I am a MSc. candidate at the University of British Columbia studying urban green spaces through deep neural networks. For GSoC, however, I will be joining the Python Software Foundation, in particular the PySAL development team and it’s open source community, in order to design and implement the
splot package. In future,
splot will provide a lightweight interface that connects PySAL to different popular visualization toolkits.
During this summer project I would like to share my experiences from GSoC, some insights into the PySAL community, tips on getting started with open source programming and of course some great geo-spatial visualizations with you.
