In collaboration with the Wheeler Institute for Business and Development, we are pleased to invite you to the
Geospatial Analytics for Business workshop.

This workshop introduces students to Geographic Information System (GIS) methods and its application in business. The focus lies on “doing GIS” for business – i.e., to capture and analyse any spatial data to inform business decision; visualize spatial pattern with big data; and optimize decision making with real-time solution and location-based insights.

By the end of the 3-part workshop, participants will:

  • Be familiar with state-of-the-art applications of business analytics using GIS techniques.
  • Know how to use a GIS software system – the workshop will use QGIS.
  • Be able to write python scripts to automate geo-processing tasks (this point is optional, based on student demand / abilities)

Each session will be in a lecture format, but with the expectation for the session to be interactive and to allow individuals enough time to ask questions and implement the examples shown during the session.

All course materials, including slides and python codes, will be posted ahead of time on a google drive set-up for the course.
