Planet training workshop
This repo contains all materials used on Planet's training workshops based on [training-workshop materials]. Below you will find environment set up instructions, decks and other learning resources to have you started on using Planet's APIs and tools.
Development Environment Setup
Getting the repo
This is a public Planet repository so you don't have to SSH authenticate to clone to your local environment. You can simply use
git clone https://github.com/samapriya/education-research.git
The following tools are regularly used in Planet School's guides from developers page:
If you choose to follow along with code here, you may find it useful to install these libraries in your development environment. You can do this by yourself both installing each library individually,
$ pip install requests $ pip install retrying $ pip install jq # Requires Node.js $ npm install -g geojsonio-cli
or installing from our pre-defined requirements file (it install a bit more than what shown above)
pip install -r requirements.txt --user
Working with Planet Data
When working with datasets like Planet's satellite imagery, here are a few useful Python libraries to know:
Rasterio is a free and open source library for working with geospatial raster imagery. Rasterio is used extensively in the Python code that you'll find through Planet School, as well as in most Jupyter Notebooks in Planet's open source Notebook collection.
Fiona is a sibling library to Rasterio used when working with geospatial vector data. While less frequently used in Planet's developer resources, Fiona can still come in handy when, for example, creating or manipulating an AOI (Area of Interest) vector dataset.
NumPy and MatPlotLib can be used to manipulate, plot, and display raster data that has been loaded via Rasterio.
