Python Geopandas Tutorial: How to Develop a Population Density Map using Open Data (Part 1)



This tutorial shows you how to develop a population density map using Python Geopandas. The data required for this exercise is download from the internet. Through this tutorial you will learn how to download, clean up and wrangle open data (with Pandas Library) to make good use of the data to perform various geo-spatial analyses with GeoPandas. Finally, the cleaned up data is amalgamated with the downloaded GIS data to develop a population density map of Nepal.
