James Quinn, the GIS Specialist at ISERP will lead a workshop titled "Using Spatial Joins as a Spatial Analysis Tool" next week Friday (2/26) in EDS from 10:30-12:30.
Registration is now open so sign up today!
A spatial join is a method for combining information between GIS layers. Performing a spatial join results in the attribute information from one layer being combined with the attribute table of another layer based on their relative location. This then makes further analysis possible.
This two hour workshop aims to demonstrate the powerful spatial analysis capabilities of spatial joins and how they can be used to examine the spatial relationships between different data layers. Objectives of the workshop include:
- Learning the purpose and capabilities of spatial joins
- Correctly setting up spatial joins based on cardinality and feature type.
- Learning to solve problems with spatial joins.
The lecture will be followed by a hands-on exercise. An introductory level knowledge of ArcMap is required to attend.
