Welcome to pre-Institute Week 3

In week 3, you will use the Jupyter Notebook file format to document code and efficiently publish code results & outputs. You will practice your Git skills by publishing your work in the NEON-WorkWithData/DI-NEON-participants GitHub repository.

Please complete the activity and submit your work to the GitHub repo by 11:59 Friday June 17th.

Week 3 Materials

Please complete each of the short tutorials in this series:

NOTE: If you are familiar with using Juyter Notebooks to document your workflow then you may be able to complete the assignment without viewing the tutorials.

Week 3 Assignment

There are two parts to this week’s assignment. First, an activity working with Jupyter Notebooks:

Second, on Monday of the Data Institute we will be working with hyperspectral data. Various indices, including the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), are common data products from hyperspectral data. In preparation for this content, please watch this video of David Hulslander discussing NEON remote sensing vegetation indices & data products.
