Tutorial: Introduction to the command line interface
by Hans van der Kwast
This video is part of the open course Programming for Geospatial Hydrological Applications. In this video you learn how to use the command line interface using a DOS emulator. You can use the same commands on the Windows Command Prompt.
In the course you'll learn an essential skill for researchers dealing with (spatial) data. With scripting you can better control your analysis using command line tools. You can also automate your procedures by writing batch scripts. Furthermore, you can process your data and make models using Python and its useful libraries.
The online learning course on Programming for Geospatial Hydrological Applications is part of the Climate Services for Water Management (CliMWaR) project, funded by the Flemish UNESCO Science Trust Fund (FUST) from the Government of Flanders in Belgium.
The course is available at the GIS OpenCourseWare platform (http://www.gisopencourseware.org) and the UNESCO Open Learning platform (https://openlearning.unesco.org/courses/course-v1:IHE-Delft+IHE-01+2020_01).
