This module develops core visualisation and spatial analysis and statistical skills required for the analysis of geographically referenced data. Students are introduced to `traditional’ and `novel’ datasets at different spatial scales and granularities related to areas, individuals, households and neighbourhoods in various contexts.
Taught through instructional notes and practical activities, students will gain a comprehensive knowledge of powerful industry-standard Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as a tool for mapping and spatial analysis and become familiar with spatial units, concepts and techniques that are used to analyse quantitative data. Students gain familiarity in applying statistical analysis techniques to explore geographic data.
The module equips students to produce and communicate high quality outputs that can be used to inform decision making. This module provides students with the quantitative skills and familiarity with different types of data to enable them to undertake subsequent modules and independent research.
