Geospatial data, especially those in hydrology, are uniquely suited to compelling and practical visualization. Maps, in particular, are not only tools for developing an initial understanding of a new set of data but are also used widely to disseminate analytical results in a native manner. This seminar will develop both a high-level understanding of the practice of visualizing geospatial data and practical skills in Python for easily creating geospatial visualizations. In particular, we will discuss the importance of (and historical precedent for) creating a visual narrative for the dissemination of information, concerns regarding cartographic projections, a brief overview of common geospatial data types, and provide live demonstrations of common open-source geospatial data visualization packages in Python using hydrologic datasets.
