Location:  Santa Cruz, CA
Time:  8:30 AM - 5:30 PM 
Elkhorn Slough Coastal Training Program

Center for Integrated Spatial Research
University of California, Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz, CA

This workshop builds on Spatial Analysis and Modeling, Part 1 by exploring more advanced training in spatial theory and methods and their application to unique geographic problems. The workshop will expand on spatial analysis concepts and topics including hydrologic and terrain analysis, spatial interpolation (geostatistics), spatial statistics (point, areal pattern analysis), and building more complex models (ArcGIS ModelBuilder and introductory concepts of Python scripting for ArcGIS). Related software for conducting spatial analysis will also be presented. Training will primarily be based on the ArcGIS 10 suite of software.

  1. Develop a more advanced understanding understanding of the spatial analysis and modeling of geographic information.
  2. Understand the appropriate application of spatial techniques to spatial data including the use of spatial statistical methods, interpolation (geostatistics), and hydrological modeling.
  3. Understand how to build complex geoprocessing models for analysis using ArcGIS ModelBuilder.
  4. Develop an introductory knowledge of scripting for ArcGIS using Python.
Prerequisites: Participants should have knowledge of geographic information systems and spatial analysis before taking this workshop

Workshop Format: Approximately 50% lecture, 50% hands on training via guided lab exercises completed individually on computers.

Teacher: Barry Nickel, Director of the Center for Integrated Spatial Research
