Datashading LandSat8 raster satellite imagery ¶
Datashader is fundamentally a rasterizing library, turning data into rasters (image-like arrays), but it is also useful for already-rasterized data like satellite imagery. For raster data, datashader uses the separate xarray library to re-render the data to whatever new bounding box and resolution the user requests, and the rest of the datashader pipeline can then be used to visualize and analyze the data. This demo shows how to work with a set of raster satellite data, generating images as needed and overlaying them on geographic coordinates using HoloViews (version >1.9), GeoViews , and Bokeh .
