Spatial Analysis with Vector Data

Intro_ArcGISSpatial Analysis with Vector Data
Are you struggling your way through spatial analysis without really understanding what you are doing? This comprehensive eleven-part course was used in as part of a master’s in GIS university program. It will guide you through everything you need to perform spatial analysis on your vector data. You will learn how to prepare your data for accurate analysis, work with the geoprocessing environment to search for and run tools as well as use them in an analysis model, perform various types of spatial analyses, and reveal/analyze patterns in your data using spatial statistics and temporal tools. This course is a must-have for any GIS professional who needs to use ArcGIS to obtain meaningful and accurate analysis results.

NOTE: The exercises for this course are optional. If you would like to do the exercises, you must have your own license of Esri’s ArcGIS for Desktop v 10.x software and a copy of the Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS workbook by Kathryn Keranen and Robert Kolvoord, from which many of the exercises are taken. The workbook comes with a DVD of GIS data required to complete the exercises.
