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.
