BSTI Essentials Session 5: Gathering Data from the Web and Geo Visualisation​ (Advanced module)

Enhance data analysis capabilities by connecting to external data sources. 

Join us for the fifth and most advanced session, where we take your data analysis capabilities to new heights.

In this final session, we will empower you with the knowledge and skills to enhance your data analysis by connecting to external data sources. You'll learn the art of extracting data from the web effortlessly using APIs and unlock the potential of geo-visualisation. 

What to Expect:

  • API Data Extraction: Dive into the concept of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and learn how to extract valuable data from the web seamlessly.
  • Geocode Visualisation: Explore the power of geocoding by retrieving precise location data for universities of interest using their addresses. Visualise these locations on an interactive map.
  • Dynamic Data Gathering: Discover techniques to dynamically gather and update data from the web, ensuring your analyses remain up-to-date and relevant.
  • Tools and Techniques: Continue to leverage PostgreSQL to retrieve previously manipulated data and harness the full potential of KNIME to connect to APIs, gather new data, and manipulate it effectively.
