Introduction to Geo Graphics in Wolfram Language

Estimated Time: 1 h

Course Level: Beginner


Wolfram Language has a rich geo graphics system with built-in access to detailed worldwide maps and extensive geographic data in the Wolfram Knowledgebase, as well as the ability to import data from external sources and APIs. This video shows you how to make interesting and dynamic maps and geographic visualizations using built-in functions capable of combining powerful graphics with precise geodetic computations. Examples include vector plots, elevation charts and satellite imagery.

Featured Products & Technologies: Wolfram Language (available in Mathematica and Wolfram|One)

You'll Learn To

  • Visualize points and areas, as well as add satellite imagery to plots
  • Plot data at specified geo positions or over broad regions
  • Access built-in geographic entities and use their properties
  • Change map backgrounds and projections
  • Add and combine graphics primitives on maps
  • Map routes and flight paths
