GIS Fundamentals – III (Geocoding)
February 3 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
This is the third workshop in a series of workshops we are offering this semester on the fundamentals of GIS. Each workshop covers one or two key elements of GIS and is self-contained. The focus is on conceptual details that can provide sufficient preparation for applications, but we will also touch upon the technical aspects. Most workshops will have at least one hands-on exercise. Typically, each workshop is divided into one hour of lecture-style presentation and half an hour of hands-on exercises. Unless mentioned otherwise, we will use R.
Geocoding (or sometimes reverse geocoding) is often a very first step in many geospatial analyses. There are many options available for geocoding with different degrees of accuracy. A basic understanding of the process helps you in choosing the best option. We will use R and ArcGIS for exercises
