GIS IV: 3-D Display and Analysis of Spatial Data
Data is most valuable when used to identify and quantify patterns and relationships. This is especially true with spatial data and spatial data analysis. GIS provides the tools and techniques for understanding and leveraging valuable information contained within spatial data.
In this course, you will learn advanced GIS spatial analysis skills and techniques. You will use this information to make decisions about the physical world through modeling and analysis of spatial data. Through hands-on projects, you will learn techniques to analyze two- and three-dimensional spatial data, including building digital elevation models, solving line-of- sight problems, calculating slope and aspect, and solving network analysis problems.
- Raster concepts, reclassifying, and resampling
- Map algebra, operators, and functions
- Conceptual models
- Site suitability analysis
- Hydrological modeling and analysis
- Risk analysis and hazard assessment
- Network analysis
- Line of sight analysis and viewsheds
- 3D visualization
- Multiple hands-on assignments using ArcGIS Pro
