Open Source and Open Science
My collection of articles on publicly available data sources, their access and interpretation, computational tools and publicly accessible scientific projects:
- Open Data: Publicly available data sets from governments, universities, private and public organizations. Also contains examples of how to access, parse and visualize data.
- Tools: Easy-to-use tools for data processing, visualization, simulation, and much more.
- Open Science Projects: Open source projects or open access information.
Publicly available data sources, ranging from NASA data sets of earth’s surface temperature to statistical data collected by EUROSTAT to data available through Google and others.
I’ll include some Python examples (mostly as a Jupyter notebook) demonstrating how to access the data (via HTML download, SQL query, web scrubbers…) and some quick post-processing.
Open Source Tools
A collection of open source tools, code snippets and other useful additions to your virtual Swiss Army Knife.
Open Science projects – larger-scale open source projects, research projects that make their data and publications available, and other related items.
