Small Discussion about Topojson?

0 votes

What is Topojson? 

TopoJSON is an extension of GeoJSON that encodes topology. Rather than representing geometries discretely, geometries in TopoJSON files are stitched together from shared line segments called arcs. This technique is similar to Matt Bloch’s MapShaper and the Arc/Info Export format, .e00. 

TopoJSON eliminates redundancy, allowing related geometries to be stored efficiently in the same file. For example, the shared boundary between California and Nevada is represented only once, rather than being duplicated for both states. A single TopoJSON file can contain multiple feature collections without duplication, such as states and counties. Or, a TopoJSON file can efficiently represent both polygons (for fill) and boundaries (for stroke) as two feature collections that share the same arc mesh.

A TopoJSON file format is a format that encodes topology. TopoJSON is an extension of geoJSON. This format contains both geospatial data (arcs) and attribute data. In contrast to other GIS formats topoJSON uses arcs. Arcs are sequences of points, while line strings and polygons are defined as sequences of arcs. 

Each arc is defined only once, but can be referenced several times by different shapes, thus reducing redundancy and decreasing the file size. The topoJSON format is a format that is used by software like Microsoft PowerBI.

NPM Command

What is Statsmodels ?

Statsmodels is a Python package that allows users to explore data, estimate statistical models, and perform statistical tests. Statsmodels is built on top of the numerical libraries NumPy and SciPy, integrates with Pandas for data handling and uses Patsy for an R-like formula interface.

Statsmodels is part of the scientific Python stack that is oriented towards data analysis, data science and statistics. Statsmodels is built on top of the numerical libraries NumPy and SciPy, integrates with Pandas for data handling and uses Patsy[3] for an R-like formula interface. Graphical functions are based on the Matplotlib library. Statsmodels provides the statistical backend for other Python libraries. Statmodels in free software released under the Modified BSD (3-clause) license.


  • Linear regression models:
  • Mixed Linear Model with mixed effects and variance components
  • GLM: Generalized linear models with support for all of the one-parameter exponential family distributions
  • Bayesian Mixed GLM for Binomial and Poisson
  • GEE: Generalized Estimating Equations for one-way clustered or longitudinal data
  • Discrete models:
  • Multivariate:
  • Nonparametric statistics: Univariate and multivariate kernel density estimators
  • Datasets: Datasets used for examples and in testing
  • Statistics: a wide range of statistical tests
  • Imputation with MICE, regression on order statistic and Gaussian imputation

What is Scapy?

Scapy is a powerful interactive packet manipulation program. It is able to forge or decode packets of a wide number of protocols, send them on the wire, capture them, match requests and replies, and much more. It can easily handle most classical tasks like scanning, tracerouting, probing, unit tests, attacks or network discovery (it can replace hping, 85% of nmap, arpspoof, arp-sk, arping, tcpdump, tethereal, p0f, etc.). 

It also performs very well at a lot of other specific tasks that most other tools can’t handle, like sending invalid frames, injecting your own 802.11 frames, combining technics

Scapy is a packet manipulation tool for computer networks, written in Python by Philippe Biondi. It can forge or decode packets, send them on the wire, capture them, and match requests and replies. It can also handle tasks like scanning, tracerouting, probing, unit tests, attacks, and network discovery.

Scapy provides a Python interface into libpcap, (WinPCap/Npcap on Windows), in a similar way to that in which Wireshark provides a view and capture GUI. It can interface with a number of other programs to provide visualization including Wireshark for decoding packets, GnuPlot for providing graphs, graphviz or VPython for visualisation, etc.

The concept behind Scapy is that it is cable of sending and receiving packets and it can sniff packets. The packets to be sent can be created easily using the built-in options and the received packets can be dissected. Sniffing of packets helps in understanding what communication is taking place on the network.

What is EOS Development?

EOS is a blockchain platform for the development of decentralized applications (dapps), similar to Ethereum in function. It provides a complete operating system for decentralized applications focused on the web with services like user authentication, cloud storage, and server hosting.

EOSIO is a free, open-source blockchain software protocol that provides developers and entrepreneurs with a platform on which to build, deploy and run high-performing decentralized applications (DAPPs)

Main Features

  • Scalable 
  • Flexible
  • Usable

EOSIO based blockchains execute user-generated applications and code using WebAssembly (WASM). WASM is an emerging web standard with widespread support of Google, Microsoft, Apple, and industry leading companies.

At the moment the most mature toolchain for building applications that compile to WASM is clang/llvm with their C/C++ compiler. For best compatibility, it is recommended that you use the EOSIO toolchain.

Other toolchains in development by 3rd parties include: Rust, Python, and Solidity. While these other languages may appear simpler, their performance will likely impact the scale of application you can build. We expect that C++ will be the best language for developing high-performance and secure smart contracts and plan to use C++ for the foreseeable future.

What is Lasagne?

Lasagne is a lightweight library to build and train neural networks in Theano.


  • Supports feed-forward networks such as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), recurrent networks including Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM), and any combination thereof
  • Allows architectures of multiple inputs and multiple outputs, including auxiliary classifiers
  • Many optimization methods including Nesterov momentum, RMSprop and ADAM
  • Freely definable cost function and no need to derive gradients due to Theano's symbolic differentiation
  • Transparent support of CPUs and GPUs due to Theano's expression compiler

Main Principles

  • Simplicity: Be easy to use, easy to understand and easy to extend, to facilitate use in research
  • Transparency: Do not hide Theano behind abstractions, directly process and return Theano expressions or Python / numpy data types
  • Modularity: Allow all parts (layers, regularizers, optimizers, ...) to be used independently of Lasagne
  • Pragmatism: Make common use cases easy, do not overrate uncommon cases
  • Restraint: Do not obstruct users with features they decide not to use
  • Focus: "Do one thing and do it well"

How to Install

pip install -r
pip install

What is Keras?

Keras is a high-level neural networks API, written in Python and capable of running on top of TensorFlow, CNTK, or Theano. It was developed with a focus on enabling fast experimentation. Being able to go from idea to result with the least possible delay is key to doing good research.


  • Allows for easy and fast prototyping (through user friendliness, modularity, and extensibility).
  • Supports both convolutional networks and recurrent networks, as well as combinations of the two.
  • Runs seamlessly on CPU and GPU.

Main Benefits

  • User friendliness. Keras is an API designed for human beings, not machines. It puts user experience front and center. Keras follows best practices for reducing cognitive load: it offers consistent & simple APIs, it minimizes the number of user actions required for common use cases, and it provides clear and actionable feedback upon user error.
  • Modularity. A model is understood as a sequence or a graph of standalone, fully-configurable modules that can be plugged together with as few restrictions as possible. In particular, neural layers, cost functions, optimizers, initialization schemes, activation functions, regularization schemes are all standalone modules that you can combine to create new models.
  • Easy extensibility. New modules are simple to add (as new classes and functions), and existing modules provide ample examples. To be able to easily create new modules allows for total expressiveness, making Keras suitable for advanced research.
  • Work with Python. No separate models configuration files in a declarative format. Models are described in Python code, which is compact, easier to debug, and allows for ease of extensibility

Python Install

pip install keras
