Geoprocessing in Python#

On this website we distribute the materials and key elements of the course. The website is still under construction, but our ambition is to continuously improve this book by adding new content and links to external sources. Also, given that this is version 01, there are probably numerous typos and formatting issues. In future versions we will have those removed!
