Doktorandkurs: Spatial Data Analysis

SDAP 2019 – course flyer

AG3170 Spatial Data Analysis in Practice 7.5 credits

Learning outcomes

Students are trained to become users of spatial data analysis techniques. Students will gain a broad knowledge of the diversity of current approaches, which methods are at hand and examples of applications using spatial data analysis in different fields. After completing the course the students should be able to:

  1. identify the appropriate approaches/techniques in spatial data analysis.
  2. use relevant knowledge to solve spatial-related problems using real-life data sets and spatial statistical tools, including pattern identification, modeling (spatial regression analysis) and visualization.
  3. to analyze results of practical exercises and be able to point out challenges and advantages with those tested techniques.
  4. develop, interpret and critically reflect upon results of a case study using one (or more) spatial data analysis technique(s) learned during the course.
  5. be able to use their new skills in spatial data techniques and communicating them to an audience (written & orally).
