CartoHack - #1.0 - Weather Data from the German Weather Service (DWD) Sebastian Meier
 19:15 - 20:15 Sebastian Maier

As part of this year’s EuroCarto 2020, we are initiating a new format: CartoHacks. Instead of traditional presentations, CartoHacks focus on hands-on exchange of experiences on how to make the most out of digital cartographic tools and services. Members from our community will provide live tutorials and provide insights into their methods and processes. We try to provide tutorials in a way that do not require too much previous experience with the topics, so that everybody can take something away from it.

The first CartoHack will take us on a journey exploring weather data from the Germany Weather Service (DWD). From getting access, downloading, through processing, down to the visualization of the data using (Python + Jupyter Notebooks). As a use case for weather data Sebastian will also introduce the project “Gieß den Kiez” by CityLAB Berlin. The source code for the tutorial, as well as the code for “Gieß den Kiez” is open source. So, f the talk gets you excited about weather data, feel free to dive deeper into the topic using the code examples.

The CartoHack event will be 60 minutes. The tutorial will take 30-45 minutes, so that we have enough time for a Q&A.
