Learn how to use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to support your research! In this course you’ll be shown how to navigate ArcGIS software. You’ll be introduced to core geographic concepts to support quality analysis and learn how to source, add, and edit raster and vector data within an ArcGIS environment.
In later weeks, you will learn how to use ArcGIS to conduct simple analyses including the use of spatial statistics. You’ll learn to produce well-designed maps and visualisations and be introduced to skills for trouble-shooting. Finally, you’ll have a chance to explore how GIS might be applied to your own research.
Where/ When: GIS Basics for Research will run on Thursdays from 2-4pm from 19 April - 31 May in the Menzies Library Flex Lab. A second round of the course will run from August 1 to September 12.
There are 15 spots available in this training. Sign-ups for the course are on HORUS with the course available to CAP academic staff and PhD students only.
