Geographic Information Systems (GIS) - Practical Sessions

1/2 day

Many disciplines in the biomedical sciences, physical sciences and social sciences, seek increasingly to examine patterns in spatial data that can be mapped. In addition to their intrinsic value in developing and testing hypotheses, spatial patterns help to reveal key social, economic and environmental processes. The Sustainable Places Institute is offering training in this area as part of its Sustainability Summer School. The training will be research-led with discipline-specific input from academics working in this area.

Researchers interested in attending the GIS sessions must attend the introductory lecture and then choose between the two practical sessions.

The practical sessions will cover a range of topics, depending on the prior experience of participants, including basic mapping, spatial analysis and spatial network analysis, accessibility modelling and carbon foot printing, and advanced network tools such as the sDNA tool.

The practical sessions are running in parallel and you must therefore book for the correct session.
