This two part workshop focuses on statistical analysis and modeling of spatial data. This is part 2. Please make sure you register for Part 1 as well
Geographic data and the ability to manipulate spatially referenced data is fast-becoming an invaluable skillset for researchers and analysts of various academic disciplines. As a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of spatial or geographical data, geographic information systems (GIS) plays the key role of applying spatial knowledge & techniques to all kinds of applications. The workshop aims to develop capacity in handling spatial data and using appropriate techniques for analyses and modeling.
In part 1, we will learn essential concepts and techniques to manipulate and explore spatial datasets using ArcGIS – the popular GIS software. Topics include spatial data basics, mapping and visualizing data in ArcGIS and exploratory analysis
In part 2, we focus on spatial statistics using STATA. Topics include concepts of Spatial modeling, Spatial Autoregressive models, and diagnostic tests.
