I upgraded Jupyterlab to version 1 to see what new features had been included.
I was very impressed how far it has come along. The CSV file viewer is a thing of beauty and can load very large files very quickly. It is becoming more of an IDE for Data Science, especially for it’s graphical output.
I decided to play around a little bit to see what it can do.
As usual, I prefer to write code that has a purpose and a goal rather than show how to create some useless widget that looks good but does nothing.
To this end, I downloaded the oldest weather data the Met Office has which is from Oxford and goes back to 1853. The location of the Station is shown in the map below.
The map should be in the Notebook file but due to the limitations of showing it in WordPress, I had to show it separately. Jupyter still uses Markdown to format the notebook which is it’s major drawback.
That said, the results are pretty good and instructions on how to post Jupyter notebooks are included in the attached file.
NB Github has problems with rendering Jupyter Notebooks. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t.
You can find the files for this at my github site if you are interested.

You can find a great learning resource here for Seaborn.
