What is GIS?
Nick Bearman, Geospatial Training Solutions / UCL
This session will introduce GIS as a research method, showing how it can be used for research across almost all subjects. We will show some example uses of GIS, as well as cover the key things to consider when using GIS with your research. We will highlight different maps that could be created, as well as highlight some spatial analysis methods that might be useful to participants. We'll also cover some common issues with working with GIS and how to avoid these. Participants are encouraged to bring questions along to the session and Nick will pick one or two case studies to talk through the process of how we might go about mapping or doing spatial analysis on these projects.
