Machine learning for predictive maintenance of infrastructure

Maintaining infrastructure can be a complex and expensive task. Predictive maintenance based on machine learning can help diagnose infrastructure failures or predict them before they happen. In this blog post, we show how a machine learning solution for predicting the failure of water pump equipment is built. We use data collected about water pumps in Tanzania by a platform called Taarifa,  …

Geodaten in Python

Working with geodata in Python

In this blog post we explain how to work efficiently with geodata in Python. Geodata can symbolize different objects – the most important are the following three. Points (e.g. individual addresses or measuring points) Lines (e.g. routes) Polygons (e.g. countries or postcode areas) In addition to coordinate formats, geodata can also be stored as addresses. We’ll explain in this post: …
