Sardinia Fires

Exploratory data analysis and visualization of fires in Sardinia from 2005 to 2016.

Data

You will need to download several datasets freely available on the Opendata Sardegna portal. See to the notebook sardinia-fires.ipynb.

Installation

Create a conda environment. You can use either Miniconda or Anaconda.

conda create --name sardinia-fires python=3.6 --yes

Activate the environment.

source activate sardinia-fires

Install all the dependencies (this might take a while):

conda install -c conda-forge geopandas jupyter --yes

Note: there seem to be some issues with fiona (one of geopandas's dependencies). I had to downgrade to fiona 1.7.9.

conda install -c conda-forge fiona=1.7.9

When all dependencies have been installed, run the notebook:

jupyter notebook

Other

You can freeze your environment with:

conda env export > environment.yml

To remove this conda environment, run:

conda env remove -n sardinia-fires

Previous Art

Mauro Melis created a really cool "scrollytelling" data visualization using the same datasets: Sardinia on Fire. His entry won the Sardegna Open Data data visualization contest in 2018.
