Beyond Where: Modeling Spatial Relationships and Making Predictions
This workshop will cover regression analysis concepts for the analysis of geographic data. Using these statistical methods in many areas (e.g., business, public health, natural resources) allows you to examine, model, and explore data relationships to help answer questions such as “why do we see so much disease in particular areas?” Regression analysis also allows you to predict spatial outcomes for other places or time periods. Application and use of ordinary least squares regression (OLS) and geographically weighted regression (GWR) will be demonstrated. You will learn how to build a properly specified OLS model and interpret the results and diagnostics. The latest advancements in regression and prediction in ArcGIS will be covered.
