Description

This free online course on Geo Spatial Analysis in Urban Planning, teaches the fundamentals of spatial analysis and how to solve problems that arise in regards to urban planning. The course begins by introducing you to the basics of GIS, along with Geographic projections and the importance of geometric transformations. The course also explains the vector and raster data models in detail, where you will learn about topology in the context of GIS and the difference between the two models. The first half of this course also covers spatial analysis methods and the uses of vector and raster data analysis.

The second half of this course shows how to manage geographical space through attribute data management and data exploration. You will also learn about spatial interpolation and all the methods that spatial interpolation entails as well as the different characterisations of network analysis and the different service or trade area analysis. 

Lastly, the course will cover aspects involving modelling of spatial relationships which greatly entails the use of landscape metrics to determine patterns in urban sprawl and urban growth. This free course is a valuable learning model that introduces you to the exciting world of urban planning and spatial analysis. Start the course today to uncover all the intricacies involved in understanding urban planning.
