Time: 2:00PM – 4:00PM
Location: C197

The geospatial statistics working group (mini-workshop) session explores different tools and plugins in QGIS. We begin with an introduction to software including how to import files in, vector and raster data, attribute tables and spatial statistics. This session would cover how to identify spatial correlation, identifying clusters, generating distance matrices and using customized tessellations or grids to generate counts. The first half of the session would consist of working with sample datasets, after which each participant would work on their own individual dataset.

The questions this workshop would help answer are:

  • Using a dataset mapping the outbreak of a disease, are there any outbreak clusters?
  • With each point representing a tree, how can I aggregate my data to represent tree cover per unit area?

No prior knowledge of geospatial software is assumed, but prior knowledge of basic descriptive statistics is.
