Hands-on Exercises using PySAL Map Classify

In this notebook, you will learn how to create choropleth maps using different classification methods available in the mapclassify package of the Python Spatial Analysis Library (PySAL) The examples in this notebook are adapted from the electronic book "Geographic Data Science with Python" by Sergio Rey, Dani Arribas-Bel, and Levi Wolf, which can be found at https://geographicdatascience/book/introhtml Specifically, we will focus on the section titled "Choropleth Mapping" under "PART II - Spatial Data Analysis" Our goal is to explore ...
