  1. I would like to see the ability to display Spatial Data on a map. Points/Polygons/Locations/Distances/Clustering etc.

    There needs to be a service that can display large data sets on a map. This service would be similar in nature to the application QGIS. The elements that should be able to be displayed would be point locations/polygons/line of points etc. Colors should be able to be assigned to different types of data based on criteria specified. An example is attached.

    • Integrate Airbnb's Caravel project as Data Exploration tool

      Add Caravel new Open Source project from Airbnb in the DSWB. See a quick demo here:
      Watch a video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Txm_nj_R7M

      Caravel's main goal is to make it easy to slice, dice and visualize data. It empowers users to perform analytics at the speed of thought.

      Caravel provides:

      -A quick way to intuitively visualize datasets by allowing users to create and share interactive dashboards
      -A rich set of visualizations to analyze your data, as well as a flexible way to extend the capabilities

        • I'd like to see video lectures within a notebook so I can type and run code while I watch lectures

          Every online course on programming tells me to download a notebook and run it on Continuum.io (Jupyter). Why can't I watch a video and practice coding at the same time? I'd like to be able to have a notebook open so I can try coding while I watch a video lecture. Better yet, there are many meetup recordings out there on programming, data science, and big data. I wish I could rewatch them with a notebook open -- all in the same interface.

            • Cheat Sheet Tool

              Hello. I guess that would be nice to have a Cheat Sheet Tool embedded in the Data Scientist Workbench. One example of an online tool that I use is https://www.cheatography.com. There are many Cheat Sheet available, but it's always good to be able to create your own Cheat Sheet with things you believe is relevant for your study/research.

                Add basic file/directory management, so that we can easily create/delete directories on the workbench and move/copy files and directories around.

                • Support for GPU computation

                  As Tensorflow is accesible through Jupyter notebooks it could be great to have GPU support to train Deep Learning models

                            It would be great to have OpenCV built into this.

                            • Julia

                              I've been working with Julia (and Jupyter) for over a year. It's pretty robust and Julia is kinda addictive: certain things can be written quite elegantly, and it's hard to rephrase in other languages. Spark integration with Julia is still early stage...

                              I would like to see support for Julia in the Data Scientist Workbench. This may support development on Julia/Spark as well.

                                  The logos for Juypter, Zeppelin and RStudio look inconsistent and unprofessional. The previous version was better.

                                      • ftp/sftp support to upload/download data

                                        It would be great if you could handle the /resources folder also with a ftp client / your favorite text editor with ftp connection

                                        • Make /resources/data the default for drag and drop

                                          Right now when I drag and drop a .csv file, it gets moved to /resources which in turn doesn't show up in "My Data" which default to /resources/data (unless I browse up by one folder).

                                          I would be great to have /resources/data be the default upload location.
