  • GSS 350: Applied Spatial Data Analysis

    Undergraduate 3 credits

    Prerequisite: AMS 102 or equivalent and GSS 313 or GSS 317 or equivalent

    SBC: STEM+

    An introduction to geospatial statistical analysis that aims to provide students with the background necessary to investigate geographically represented data. The specific focus is on spatial data analysis, such as the analysis of autocorrelation, principles of geostatistics and analysis methods that are relevant in the fields of public health, environmental/earth science and social science. An important aspect of the course is to gain hands-on experience in applying these techniques with GIS and spatial analytical software, and essential methodological and practical issues that are involved in sophisticated spatial analyses.
