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. You will study the sources of the various data such as sensors, manual observations, questionnaire surveys and how this data is collated in a digital format as a database to perform the GIS data analysis. 

Next, you will learn about vector data analysis and how vector models use points, the coordinates of the points, lines and polygons. These  are used as input for modeling or any sort of analysis using these vector features. You will study the different ways of doing pattern analysis; what happens when the values are different, whether patterns can be identified, and how the patterning is done at a global level or local level.

Finally, you will learn about Raster Data Analysis which is continuous data analysis; and how it compares to Vector Data Analysis which is a discontinuous data set. This course also covers spatial analysis methods and the uses of vector and raster data analysis. This 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 all the steps that go into urban planning.
