I am new here. I work in construction as an estimator and I am starting to get into data analysis because I can see all the potential benefits of having both for strengthening my future career goals. I know basic html/css scripts from a former hobby, but I am just starting to crack into python.
So I have one small goal (which really might not be that small of a goal) on the path to the large goal of having a generalized good understanding of data analysis, and I am sure there might be programs already on the market for this task, but I would rather do it myself to get the experience. I want to create a database of contacts for companies I typically work with, and want to build a query to pull contacts from that list through location (as in 30/60/90 miles from an address). I want it to be simple.
So my question is what would be the MOST direct path of learning to get to that point. I think this has to do with “geopoint”. I could definitely be wrong. Any thoughts on what would be best for me to learn to get to that point?
