Martin Fleischmann

I am a researcher in urban morphology and geographic data science focusing on quantitative analysis and classification of cities, remote sensing, and bits of AI. While not doing the research, I write open source software, promote open science and help others with their data.

I am an author or a maintainer of a range of open scientific software, including GeoPandas, the open source Python package for geographic data handling, momepy, the urban morphology measuring toolkit for Python, Xvec, the tool for vector data cubes, and PySAL, the Python library for spatial analysis.

Vector data cubes as a bridge between raster and vector worlds
Martin Fleischmann

This talk introduces the concept of vector data cubes - multi-dimensional arrays where at least one dimension is composed of vector geometries - and its implementation in Python within a new library Xvec, built on top of Xarray, Shapely 2.0 and GeoPandas.
