Imagery, Automation, and Applications
Using the knowledge you’ve learned about ArcGIS, complete technical tasks such raster calculations and suitability analysis. In this class you will become comfortable with spatial analysis and applications within GIS during four week-long modules: Week 1: Learn the foundational tools for advanced raster analysis Week 2: Examine digital elevation models using ArcGIS tools and create derived products such as hillshades and slope rasters. Week 3: Become familiar with common algorithms for spatial decision making such as suitability analyses and hydrologic processing. You will also learn how to analyze aerial and satellite imagery to perform time-based analysis. Week 4: Explore the advanced ModelBuilder tool, a visual programming language that allows you to automate sections of your data analysis Take Imagery, Modeling and Applications as a standalone course or as part of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialization. By completing the fourth class you will gain the skills needed to succeed in the Specialization capstone.
