This one-day course provides an introduction to applications of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial analysis in understanding retail sector dynamics. We focus on the visualisation and analysis of data related to retail supply (e.g. store catchments) and demand (including geodemographics) at national, regional and local scales. We consider commercial and public sector applications of retail analytics and introduce increasingly sophisticated analysis tools. These include GIS-based measures of accessibility and network analysis to determine retail service areas. A series of…
