In this two day class you’ll learn how to use perform spatial statistical analysis using ArcGIS Desktop and R. In the first half of the course we’ll explore the spatial statistics tools found in ArcGIS Desktop including how to measure geographic distributions and map clusters. Using ArcGIS Desktop geographic distribution tools you’ll learn how to calculate the central feature, determine directional distribution, linear directional mean, mean and median center, and standard distance. Cluster analysis will include generating hot spots, cluster and outlier analysis, grouping analysis, and similarity search. In the second half of the course you’ll learn how to connect R to ArcGIS Desktop to create custom R spatial tools that integrate additional spatial statistical analysis including autocorrelation and autoregression.
