Geographic Information Systems (GIS) - Introductory Lecture

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.

Postdoctoral researchers may attend this introductory lecture as a standalone session if they wish rather than attending the whole Sustainability Summer School (30 June - 4 July).

In addition, they have the option of attending one of two practical sessions. See Geographic Information Systems (GIS) - Practical session for more information.
