Measurements and Data Analysis for Agricultural Engineers Using Python

About the Book

This book is based on my lecture notes from the course “Measurement technology” at my previous position in the Department of Agricultural Sciences at the University of Helsinki.

The book has two parts:

  1. The beginning covers the basics of the theory needed to understand proper sampling and planning of measurement systems. It also covers basics of data loggers and sensor connections. The book doesn’t cover sensor, this information is difficult to keep up to date and there are several books focusing on sensors already. 
  2. The second part covers the basics of Python, Scientific Python with applications to spectral analysis and digital filtering. The focus is on examples in signal processing.
