Introduction to the Wolfram Language for GIS and Geospatial Analysis

Put the Power of the Wolfram Language to Work for You

The Wolfram Language is a powerful symbolic programming language that is designed to help you go from an idea to a complete analysis quickly by automating as much as possible. In fact, the Wolfram Language is a kind of hybrid between computer code and a database because it comes with a vast amount of curated data that is immediately accessible to you and usable in your analysis.

The Wolfram Language also has lots of built in GIS functions for analysis and mapping. It is an excellent tool for GIS Analysts to be familiar with. This one-hour course introduces you to what it does and how it can be used. I start with a brief introduction to the language and then sample of variety of GIS and mapping topics that demonstrate the power of the Wolfram Language.

No prior knowledge of programming is required. I start from the very beginning. In fact, if you are a GIS analyst who is thinking about learning a programing language you might want to consider the Wolfram Language. You will be surprised at how little code it takes to get very sophisticated results using it.

No special software is needed. This course is taught using the online Wolfram Development Platform. Everything you need to follow along and get started can be found there. Just create a free account. Let’s get started.
