MAT 295-03 - Special Topic: Statistical Analysis of Spatial Data

4 credits (Spring)
Cross-listed as: SST 295-03 . The course covers basic methods for visualizing, analyzing, and understanding patterns in spatial data, including use of GIS software to create maps of spatial data, recognizing different types of spatial data and appropriate analytical methods for each type, and basic statistical analyses using the GIS software. We will use case studies based on data from a variety of fields, and emphasize the dependence of analytical methods on the data structure and the analyst’s assumptions.
