Tutorial: Map Algebra with PCRaster Python

5. Spatial interpolation of borehole data

To run the Jupyter Notebook of this tutorial make sure you have followed the instructions for installing Anaconda and downloading the tutorials in the previous unit. We assume that you're in the Anaconda prompt and that you're in the tutorials environment.

  1. Go to the subdirectory \PCRasterTutorials\GroundwaterInterpolation
  2. Run the command
    jupyter notebook
  3. In the internet browser click on  Groundwater_level.ipynb and follow the tutorial.

The tutorial is based on this QGIS tutorial and uses data from the Borehole Database in the Stampriet Transboundary Aquifer from the Orange-Senqu River Basin GIS Server. If you want to visualise the data and results in QGIS, the projection is EPSG:32734.

This video shows the whole exercise in the Spyder IDE:
