This three day core course introduces selected fundamental spatial analytical tools and demonstrates their application. Students are introduced to data exploration and statistics, reclassification, buffering and distance surfaces, network modeling, surface analysis including spatial interpolation, and overlay functions. The course concludes with discussion of spatial analysis modeling. Each subject is reinforced with a laboratory exercise that leads students through GIS data, tools and techniques. Students are required to have a working knowledge of ArcGIS.
