Lab Assessment



The Battle of Neighborhoods

In this module, you will start working on the capstone project. You will clearly define a problem and discuss the data that you will be used to solve the problem.

Key Concepts

Clearly define a problem or an idea of your choice, where you would need to leverage the Foursquare location data to solve or execute. Remember that data science problems always target an audience and are meant to help a group of stakeholders solves a problem, so make sure that you explicitly describe your audience and why they would care about your problem.

This submission will eventually become your  Introduction/Business Problem  section in your final report. So I recommend that you push the report (having your Introduction/Business Problem section only for now) to your Github repository and submit a link to it.

Describe the data that you will be used to solve the problem or execute your idea. Remember that you will need to use the Foursquare location data to solve the problem or execute your idea. You can absolutely use other datasets in combination with the Foursquare location data. So make sure that you provide adequate explanation and discussion, with examples, of the data that you will be using, even if it is only Foursquare location data.

This submission will eventually become your  Data  section in your final report. So I recommend that you push the report (having your Data section) to your Github repository and submit a link to it.

A Tale of Two cities – Clustering the Neighbourhoods of London and Paris

1. introduction.

A Tale of Two cities, a novel written by Charles Dickens was set in London and Paris which takes place during the French Revolution. These cities were both happening then and now. A lot has changed over the years and we now take a look at how the cities have grown.

London and Paris are quite a popular tourist and vacation destinations for people all around the world. They are diverse and multicultural and offer a wide variety of experiences that are widely sought after. We try to group the neighborhoods of London and Paris respectively and draw insights into what they look like now.

2. Business Problem

The aim is to help tourists choose their destinations depending on the experiences that the neighborhoods have to offer and what they would want to have. This also helps people make decisions if they are thinking about migrating to London or Paris or even if they want to relocate neighborhoods within the city. Our findings will help stakeholders make informed decisions and address any concerns they have including the different kinds of cuisines, provision stores, and what the city has to offer.

3. Data Description

We require geographical location data for both London and Paris. Postal codes in each city serve as a starting point. Using Postal codes we use can find out the neighborhoods, boroughs, venues, and their most popular venue categories.

To derive our solution, We scrape our data from  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_areas_of_London

This wikipedia page has information about all the neighborhoods, we limit it to London.

This wikipedia page lacks information about the geographical locations. To solve this problem we use ArcGIS API

3.2 ArcGIS API

ArcGIS Online enables you to connect people, locations, and data using interactive maps. Work with smart, data-driven styles and intuitive analysis tools that deliver location intelligence. Share your insights with the world or specific groups.

More specifically, we use ArcGIS to get the geo locations of the neighborhoods of London. The following columns are added to our initial dataset which prepares our data.

To derive our solution, We leverage JSON data available at  https://www.data.gouv.fr/fr/datasets/r/e88c6fda-1d09-42a0-a069-606d3259114e

The JSON file has data about all the neighborhoods in France, we limit it to Paris.

3.4 Foursquare API Data

We will need data about different venues in different neighbourhoods of that specific borough. In order to gain that information, we will use “Foursquare” locational information. Foursquare is a location data provider with information about all manner of venues and events within an area of interest. Such information includes venue names, locations, menus, and even photos. As such, the foursquare location platform will be used as the sole data source since all the stated required information can be obtained through the API.

After finding the list of neighborhoods, we then connect to the Foursquare API to gather information about venues inside each and every neighborhood. For each neighbourhood, we have chosen the radius to be 500 meters.

The data retrieved from Foursquare contained information of venues within a specified distance of the longitude and latitude of the postcodes. The information obtained per venue is as follows:

Based on all the information collected for both London and Paris, we have sufficient data to build our model. We cluster the neighbourhoods together based on similar venue categories. We then present our observations and findings. Using this data, our stakeholders can take the necessary decision.

4. Methodology

We will be creating our model with the help of Python so we start off by importing all the required packages.

Package breakdown:

The approach taken here is to explore each of the cities individually, plot the map to show the neighborhoods being considered, and then build our model by clustering all of the similar neighborhoods together and finally plot the new map with the clustered neighborhoods. We draw insights and then compare and discuss our findings.

4.1 Data Collection

In the data collection stage, we begin with collecting the required data for the cities of London and Paris. We need data that has the postal codes, neighborhoods, and boroughs specific to each of the cities.

To collect data for London, we scrape the List of areas of London wikipedia page to take the 2nd table using the following code:

The data looks like this:


To collect data for Paris, we download the JSON file containg all the postal codes of France from  https://www.data.gouv.fr/fr/datasets/r/e88c6fda-1d09-42a0-a069-606d3259114e

Using Pandas we load the table after reading the JSON file:


4.2 Data Preprocessing

For London, We replace the spaces with underscores in the title.The  borough  column has numbers within square brackets that we remove using:

For Paris, we break down each of the nested fields and create the dataframe that we need:

4.3 Feature Selection

For both of our datasets, we need only the borough, neighbourhood, postal codes and geolocations (latitude and longitude). So we end up selecting the columns that we need by:

4.4 Feature Engineering

Both of our Datasets actually contain information related to all the cities in the country. We can narrow down and further process the data by selecting only the neighbourhoods pertaining to ‘London’ and ‘Paris’

Looking over our London dataset, we can see that we don’t have the geolocation data. We need to extrapolate the missing data for our neighbourhoods. We perform this by leveraging the  ArcGIS API . With the Help of  ArcGIS API  we can get the latitude and longitude of our London neighbourhood data.

Defining London arcgis geocode function to return latitude and longitude

Passing postal codes of london to get the geographical co-ordinates

We proceed with Merging our source data with the geographical co-ordinates to make our dataset ready for the next stage


As for our Paris dataset, we don’t need to get the geo coordinates using an external data source or collect it with the  ArcGIS  API call since we already have it stored in the  geo_point_2d  column as a tuple in the df_paris dataframe.

We just need to extract the latitude and longitude for the column:

We then create our Paris dataset with the required information:


Note: Both the datasets have been properly processed and formatted. Since the same steps are applied to both the datasets of London and Paris, we will be discussing the code for only the London dataset for simplicity.

4.5 Visualizing the Neighbourhoods of London and Paris

Now that our datasets are ready, using the  Folium  package, we can visualize the maps of London and Paris with the neighbourhoods that we collected.

Neighbourhood map of London:


Neighbourhood map of Paris:


Now that we have visualized the neighbourhoods, we need to find out what each neighbourhood is like and what are the common venue and venue categories within a 500m radius.

This is where  Foursquare  comes into play. With the help of  Foursquare  we define a function which collects information pertaining to each neighbourhood including that of the name of the neighbourhood, geo-coordinates, venue and venue categories.

Resulting data looks like:


4.6 One Hot Encoding

Since we are trying to find out what are the different kinds of venue categories present in each neighbourhood and then calculate the top 10 common venues to base our similarity on, we use the One Hot Encoding to work with our categorical datatype of the venue categories. This helps to convert the categorical data into numeric data.

We won’t be using label encoding in this situation since label encoding might cause our machine learning model to have a bias or a sort of ranking which we are trying to avoid by using One Hot Encoding.

We perform one hot encoding and then calculate the mean of the grouped venue categories for each of the neighbourhoods.


4.7 Top Venues in the Neighbourhoods

In our next step, We need to rank and label the top venue categories in our neighborhood.

Let’s define a function to get the top venue categories in the neighbourhood

There are many categories, we will consider top 10 categories to avoid data skew.

Defining a function to label them accurately

Getting the top venue categories in the neighbourhoods of London


4.8 Model Building – KMeans

Moving on to the most exicitng part –  Model Building!  We will be using KMeans Clustering Machine learning algorithm to cluster similar neighbourhoods together. We will be going with the number of clusters as 5.

Our model has labelled each of the neighbourhoods, we add the label into our dataset.

We then join London_merged with our neighbourhood venues sorted to add latitude & longitude for each of the neighborhood to prepare it for visualization.


4.9 Visualizing the clustered Neighbourhoods

Our data is processed, missing data is collected and compiled. The Model is built. All that’s remaining is to see the clustered neighbourhoods on the map. Again, we use  Folium  package to do so.

We drop all the NaN values to prevent data skew

Map of clustered neighbourhoods of London:


Map of clustered neighbourhoods of Paris


4.9.1 Examining our Clusters

We could examine our clusters by expanding on our code using the  Cluster Labels  column:

5. Results and Discussion

The neighbourhoods of London are very mulitcultural. There are a lot of different cusines including Indian, Italian, Turkish and Chinese. London seems to take a step further in this direction by having a lot of restaurants, bars, juice bars, coffee shops, Fish and Chips shops, and Breakfast spots. It has a lot of shopping options too with that of the Flea markets, flower shops, fish markets, Fishing stores, clothing stores. The main modes of transport seem to be Buses and trains. For leisure, the neighborhoods are set up to have lots of parks, golf courses, zoos, gyms, and Historic Sites. Overall, the city of London offers a multicultural, diverse, and certainly entertaining experience.

Paris is relatively small in size geographically. It has a wide variety of cusines and eateries including French, Thai, Cambodian, Asian, Chinese, etc. There are a lot of hangout spots including many Restaurants and Bars. Paris has a lot of Bistros. Different means of public transport in Paris include buses, bikes, boats or ferries. For leisure and sightseeing, there are a lot of Plazas, Trails, Parks, Historic sites, clothing shops, Art galleries, and Museums. Overall, Paris seems like a relaxing vacation spot with a mix of lakes, historic spots, and a wide variety of cusines to try out.

6. Conclusion

The purpose of this project was to explore the cities of London and Paris and see how attractive it is to potential tourists and migrants. We explored both the cities based on their postal codes and then extrapolated the common venues present in each of the neighborhoods finally concluding with clustering similar neighborhoods together.

We could see that each of the neighborhoods in both the cities has a wide variety of experiences to offer which is unique in its own way. The cultural diversity is quite evident which also gives the feeling of a sense of inclusion.

Both Paris and London seem to offer a vacation stay or a romantic getaway with a lot of places to explore, beautiful landscapes, amazing food, and a wide variety of cultures. Overall, it’s upto the stakeholders to decide which experience they would prefer more and which would more to their liking.

Check IBM Data Science Professional Certificate

You know what topics are covered in both certification programs. Now let’s see the Pros and Cons of both programs-

Now it’s time to know which one is better for you.

My Recommendation: Google Data Analytics Certification vs IBM Data Analyst – Which One is Better?

I recommend Google Data Analytics Certification .

Because it has a network established of employers that are already going to accept this certificate in place of a degree equivalent, another reason is that you will learn from data analysts and see what problems they are facing as data analysts daily and get to know about their experiences while learning.

A capstone project is the next reason. Because in Google Data Analytics Certification, you can choose your own dataset to build the capstone project. Along with that, you will also get interview tips and guidance, which is not provided by IBM Data Analyst Certification.

But, it doesn’t mean that IBM data analyst is not good. Especially if you are looking for a course in your native language or you want to learn Data Analytics using Python . But if we compare it with Google Data Analytics Certification , then Google Data Analytics Certification is much better than IBM Data Analyst.

Start Learning with Google Data Analytics Certification
