Spatial Data Technologies for Mapping (601.732.86) and Applied Spatial Statistics (601.733.86)


Focuses on further developing and integrating components of the spatial science paradigm: Spatial Data, GIS and Spatial Statistics. Provides an opportunity for students to gain a working knowledge of resources for conducting spatial analysis (e.g., literature, software, and data). Expands students’ abilities to design and conduct spatial analysis by providing data for reproduction, and in some cases, extension of analyses from existing studies.

Learning Objectives:

Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:

  1. Integrate spatial information and spatial analysis into public health research and practice
  2. Frame a scientific question and/or hypothesis about spatial relationships into the appropriate spatial statistical methodology, the results and interpretations of which represent quantities of scientific interest
  3. Identify appropriate resources (literature, software, data) for conducting spatial analysis
  4. Complete a spatial analysis (including methods, results and interpretation) that addresses each component of the spatial science paradigm
