GIS for Statisticians Training

Home GIS Courses GIS for Statisticians Training

Spatial statistics will allow you to answer the following questions about your data:

  • How are the features distributed?
  • What is the pattern created by the features?
  • Where are the clusters?
  • How do patterns and clusters of different variables compare on one another?
  • What are the relationships between sets of features or values?

Geographical Information System (GIS) is widely used as a valuable tool for the management, analysis, and presentation of various and great volumes of data, as well as different local planning activities.

About this Course

The course will help you understand the statistical techniques used in GIS, and some basic theory and background so that you can use statistics in an intelligent way. This course was created in response to professionals wanting to know about how to properly use statistics and GIS in their work. Learn fundamental concepts that underlie the use of a GIS with hands-on experience with maps and geographic data.

  • Create a GIS map.
  • Evaluate data for use in a GIS mapping project.
  • Visually analyze feature relationships and patterns on a GIS map.
  • Share GIS maps and analysis results.
  • Understand the different kinds of data that GIS analysts can use for statistics, and any limitations they may pose.
