The Spatial Data Science Conference has brought together GIS & Data Science experts to discuss the latest & Skills in Spatial Data Science are increasingly in demand, and yet only 1 in 3 Data Scientists in enterprise organizations have significant experience working with spatial data and modelling.

This Spatial Data Science Bootcamp is an intensive 1-day course designed for Data Science and Analytics professionals in both the private and public sector. The syllabus will arm you with the geospatial skills and knowledge you need to get started in applying spatial analysis to your day to day work.

"The bootcamp provided me with a plethora of learning opportunities, and I appreciate the effort and time you invested in bringing together such an esteemed group of speakers and attendees. The sessions were insightful and engaging, and I left the conference feeling inspired and motivated to apply what I've learned in my own work."

More about SDSC

The Spatial Data Science Conference has been running since 2017. Our conferences (which take place online, in New York and London) have brought together thousands of people across the globe to discuss Spatial Data Science use cases, showcasing some of the best stories from a wide range of industries and countries. Our new bootcamps come as a response to many of our attendees also wanting a more hands-on experience, as well as organizations needing to upskill their Data Science teams in all things geospatial.
