Register for updates .. email updates & Data Analytics Web Sessions

The Data Analytics Methods & Resources session is focused on using data analytics in the context of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications. The applications involve a mix of geographic, business, demographic and economic data. The session is open to University of Missouri faculty, researchers, students and alums. Software and data resources used in this session are available to participants in advance of the session. The resources may be used by participants following the session for their own research and analysis.

Not all topics can be fully covered in a 90 minute session. This document can be used as a reference resource for those interested but unable to attend and those interested in more detail on topics that could not be fully covered.
