Aim of Course:
Spatial analysis often uses methods adapted from conventional analysis to address problems in which spatial location is the most important explanatory variable. This course, which is directed particularly to students with backgrounds in either computing or statistics but who lack a background in the necessary geospatial concepts, will explain and give examples of the analysis that can be conducted in a geographic information system such as ArcGIS or Mapinfo. The motivation is simple: it is one thing to run a GIS, but quite another to use it analytically to help answer questions such as:

•Is there an unusual cluster of crimes/cases of a disease here that we need to worry about?
•Do these data show variation across the country that I need to know about?
•What is the most probable air temperature here?
In the course we will explore methods that enable answers to be given to these, and similar, questions involving spatial variation.

Please note this is a four week online course.
