Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a useful tool for multiple disciplines and user groups. In urban development and planning, different constituencies like local authorities interact through GIS e.g. applying it in environmental agencies, transportation, energy, resource and waste management, retail, disaster management, and socio-economics. Collecting, managing, analysing and visualising data with GIS as an information-sharing tool can help in different stages of planning processes – from identifying problems to evaluating different planning proposals. Working with GIS allows us to create easily understandable maps and to enable communication processes.
This course introduces different spatial analysis of Vector and Raster data based on ArcGIS Toolbox tools. For developing a complex process through different tools, ModelBuilder will be applied to connect different tools and automated workflows based on different variables and parameters. Participants will be introduced to the ModelBuilder interface, proprieties and how to create, run and edit the Model. Various spatial analysis qualifications will be gained, such as where to allocate each use/service based on pre-identified criteria.
