This tutorial demonstrates how to access and visualize crime data for Denver, Colorado.
Data Intensive Tutorials
Scientific programming can be used to efficiently work with many different types of data. Rather than performing tasks manually, you can write code that opens, cleans and processes your data. However, often figuring out how to perform a specific task in
Python or another programming language can be tricky. In the tutorials below, you will learn how to use
