Houston Data Science Meetup: Visualizing Geospatial Data on GPUs with MapD

June 18 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm CDT


There has been an explosion of geospatial data sources and collection in recent years, and with it the need for technologies that data analysts can use to query and visualize those very large data sets interactively, exploring and taking action on the data in real-time. Using the open source MapD SQL engine and MapD analytics platform, you can eliminate waiting for slow reports, downsampling, and pre-aggregating, and put the power of the GPU to use in rendering your complex geospatial charts and plots.
In this workshop, participants will be given access to a MapD instance, and hand-on instruction in the following:
-How to install and setup the MapD platform in the cloud, or on prem.
-How to import a geospatial dataset, either one of our samples or one of your own.
-How to create dashboards with geospatial charts in MapD Immerse.
-How to create multi-layer maps, combining data from multiple sources.
-How to update dashboards and share them.

About Houston Data Science Meetup
Houston Data Science is a Meetup group by and for Houston’s data science community.
Our goal is to foster Houston’s data science community by providing a forum for learning, teaching, and networking. We welcome both beginners and experts, as well as those simply interested in learning more about data science and the Houston data science community.
As a community-driven group, we minimize commercial content in our events and emphasize open source and freely available resources for our members.
