Applied GIS: social science applications

26th-27th April 2016

CMIST, Humanities Bridgeford Street

This course is aimed at researchers who have some familiarity with spatial data and GIS software functionality. This two day course uses a series of accessible hands-on practicals and supporting lectures to introduce participants to a series of more advanced spatial analysis functions and tools within a GIS. We work primarily with vector data (points, lines, polygons and networks) to gain familiarity with GIS tools and techniques used for applied research within the social sciences. Specifically we will introduce spatial clustering, measures of proximity and access, network analysis, construction of service areas and evaluation of facility or service locations, via a series of research questions which could applied in many research contexts. We use ESRIs ArcGIS industry standard proprietary GIS software, widely used by the research community and commercial sector.
