Information about DiSC-supported software for the collection, processing, analysis or display of numeric, text, or geospatial data

Python is a programming language that is popular among researchers in many fields.

Like all programing languages, the learning curve is steep, but Python is far easier to learn than other languages.

If you mostly want to do statistics, and do not need to do much programming, you may prefer R or another statistical software.

Access to Python

  • Python (Anaconda) is installed on all the computers in the Digital Scholarship Center in Fenwick Library
  • For ease of installation, we recommend installing the free Anaconda platform for Python
