Version Control with Git

The DE Africa Sandbox can be used with the version control software Git. Git is free and open-source, and is an industry standard for maintaining code bases used by multiple users.

The DE Africa Analysis Sandbox has integrated compatibility with Git. Connecting your Sandbox to Git via a GitHub account is an excellent way of accessing the DE Africa analysis code, which uses Python in Jupyter Notebooks. It allows you to make your own changes and develop new analyses, without affecting existing code. It is also important for collaboration, as you can publish your changes so they can be viewed, reviewed, and edited by your co-workers.

To see the extensive code available in the Sandbox for spatial analysis, see the Notebook Gallery.

When you create a DE Africa Sandbox account or use the DE Africa Sandbox, you agree to the Sandbox Terms and Conditions.
