GEOG 4760 - Advanced Spatial Analysis and GIS Applications

GIS based introduction to advanced spatial analysis and spatial decision making concepts. Understanding how proficiency with GIS and spatial analysis can be readily applied in a wide range of problem solving contexts in the social and natural sciences. Emphasis on spatial uncertainty and how it affects the quality of spatial analysis and spatial decision making.

Requisites: GEOG 3600 or 4660 or 4730
Credit Hours: 4
Repeat/Retake Information: May be retaken two times excluding withdrawals, but only last course taken counts.
Lecture/Lab Hours: 3.0 lecture, 2.0 laboratory
Grades: Eligible Grades: A-F,WP,WF,WN,FN,AU,I
Learning Outcomes:
  • Apply spatial statistics to analyze and test the validity of geospatial patterns.
  • Demonstrate operational knowledge of GIS software for advanced spatial analysis methods for vector and raster GIS data.
  • Demonstrate theoretical understanding and practical application of spatial multicriteria analysis methods in GIS based problem solving.
  • Identify spatial uncertainty effects and use appropriate methods to test the impact of such uncertainty on quality of spatial analyses.
  • Recognize the impact of scale, spatial context, and multiple representation in geospatial analysis.
