Guidance and support for completing an independent spatial analysis project of your choosing.
This course will involve the research, analysis and writing of a complete and independent spatial analysis project. Intermediate outlines, hypotheses and objectives produced in previous classes will be finalized. No new material will be covered. The finalized project will follow journal article format including an abstract, and introduction/background, methods, results and conclusion sections. The final project will represent an integrated and synthesized assessment of the spatial science paradigm (Spatial Data, GIS, Spatial Statistics) applied to a relevant public health problem.
Learning Objectives
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
  1. 1. Formulate a set of hypotheses and objectives for investigating spatial characteristics for a relevant public health problem
  2. 2. Conduct an independent spatial analysis including all components of the spatial science paradigm; spatial data, GIS and spatial statistics
  3. 3. Summarize background material including literature citations for a relevant public health problem
Methods of Assessment
This course is evaluated as follows:
  • 25% Paper(s)
  • 25% Paper(s)
  • 50% Final Paper
