Spatial statistics is one of the fastest growing fields in
statistics, with lots of cool applications (like the onboard
device that will land a plane based on recorded data about any
given airport, rendering obsolete existing capital-intensive
land-based guidance systems).  Learn more about the foundations of
geospatial statistics in David Unwin’s online course “Spatial
Statistics (with GIS),” November 12–December 10 at statistics.com.

Upcoming courses:

Oct 29:  Financial Risk Modeling
Oct 29:  Interactive Data Visualization
Nov  5:  Cluster Analysis
Nov 12:  Spatial Statistics (with GIS) – (see below)
Dec 17:  Spatial Analysis Techniques in R

“Spatial Statistics with GIS” includes practical work with GIS
software, and covers the spatial analytical methods that GIS
users need to make best use of both their spatial data and their
GIS, and answer such questions as:

-  Is there an unusual cluster of crimes/cases of a disease here
that we need to worry about?

-  Do these data show variation across the country that I need to
know about?

-  What is the air temperature here most likely to be?

Dr. David Unwin , until his retirement in 2002, was Professor of
Geography at Birkbeck College, University of London, where he
retains an Emeritus Chair in the subject. He is also a Visiting
Professor in the Department of Geomatic Engineering at University
College, also in the University of London. His work using and
developing spatial statistics in research stretches back some 40
years, and he has authored over a hundred academic papers in the
field, together with a series of texts, of which the most recent
are his “Geographic Information Analysis, 2nd edition” (with D.
O'Sullivan, 2010) and a series of edited collections at the
interface between geography and computer science in “Visualization
in GIS” (Hearnshaw and Unwin, 1994), “Spatial Analytical
Perspectives on GIS” (Fischer, Scholten and Unwin, 1996)
“Virtual Reality in Geography” (Fisher and Unwin, 2002) and,
most recently representation issues in “Re-presenting GIS”
(Fisher and Unwin, 2005). Having developed the world's first
wholly internet-delivered Master's program in GIS in 1998,
David Unwin has considerable experience of teaching and
tutoring online.  Participants can ask questions and exchange
comments directly with Dr. Unwin via a private discussion board
during the course.

The course takes place online at statistics.com in a series of 4
weekly lessons and assignments, and requires about 15 hours/week.
Participate at your own convenience; there are not set times when 
you are required to be online.
