SPATIAL ANALYSIS IN QGIS
Teacher: Baruch Sangines
Spatial analysis of georeferenced data has become particularly relevant within the Social Sciences since social phenomena occur in a given geographical space. When analyzing data linked to a locality, municipality or state, researchers can identify patterns, delimit regions or define places to implement public policies.
The results of the spatial analysis can be represented graphically through cartography. Maps are a resource that facilitates the interpretation of large amounts of information and allows readers to better understand the nature of the data.
This course’s objective is to provide the know-how to analyze data and create maps with the QGIS program, which is the most well-known open platform within the Geographic Information Systems. By this system, it is possible to visualize information, measure accessibility to services, create heat maps and generate products ready to be included in journals, theses, or any type of printed or digital publication.
