Going Places with Spatial AnalysisConsider the special characteristics and value of spatial data and analysis, and then get started with ArcGIS Online.
Understanding and Comparing PlacesWatch brief lectures about fundamental topics like queries, scale of analysis, descriptive statistics, and projection. Query a layer and sum attributes to make a map showing the best locations for new mixed-use development.
Determining How Places Are RelatedLearn about vector overlay, the modifiable areal unit problem, and normalizing data for choropleth mapping. Use ArcGIS Online to analyze watersheds for water quality monitoring, and summarize the number of streetlights in a city’s maintenance assessment district.
Finding the Best Locations and PathsDiscuss topology, site suitability, cost paths, and other key concepts. Find suitable sites for a grocery distribution center and preferable areas for cougar habitat using ArcGIS Online.
Detecting and Quantifying PatternsLecture topics include density surfaces, spatial autocorrelation, and spatiotemporal analysis. Use density and hot spot analyses to visualize patterns of personal and property crimes.
Making PredictionsLearn about spatial interaction, regression, surface analysis, and interpolation. Use ArcGIS Online to interpolate sample points and make a map showing areas at risk of long-term poor air quality.
