This course will focus on developing spatial questions, visualizing spatial data, and creating statistically sound analysis plans for spatially relevant data. Specifically, the course will include techniques within the ArcGIS environment to visualize and explore spatial data, assess geographic clustering, and perform basic spatial prediction. The course is designed to provide a foundation in spatial statistics and highlight key caveats and questions to consider when working with spatial data. Prospective attendees should have working/intermediate knowledge of ArcGIS. All tools and data will be available on site using tools availible to all Yale faculty and students.
