15th February 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Event Navigation

This training is now fully booked. To add your name to the waiting list please email C.N.Marshall@soton.ac.uk.

The Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC) and Administrative Data Research Centre for England (ADRC-E) are co-hosting the course ‘Confident Spatial Analysis’.

In this course we will cover how to prepare and analyse spatial data in RStudio & GeoDa. We will use RStudio to perform spatial overlay techniques (such as union, intersection and buffers) to combine different spatial data layers to support a spatial analysis decision. We will also use RStudio and GeoDa to explore a range of different spatial analyses including regression, Moran’s I and clustering. By the end of the course you will understand how RStudio manages spatial data and be able to use RStudio for a range of spatial analysis.

If you are not already familiar with the basic elements of GIS or R, you may wish to attend the one-day course ‘Introduction to Spatial Data & Using R as a GIS’ prior to this course on 14 Feb where these skills are covered.

Course Contents:

-Basic spatial analysis and statistics, such as Moran’s I and Local Indicators of Spatial Autocorrelation
-Using GeoDa and R to perform these analysis and understand the outputs
-Be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of different pieces of software
-Perform spatial decision making in R, using buffers, overlays and spatial joins

By the end of the course, students will be able to:

-Know how to use RStudio and GeoDa for a range of spatial analysis
-Understand why spatial autocorrelation is important and how to measure it
-Be able to use GeoDa to perform clustering analysis
-Understand how to use buffers and overlays to support your proposals
-Develop your confidence in using RStudio for data handling using scripts
-Know how to develop custom functions in RStudio
