103-0251-00LComputational Methods for Geospatial Analysis4 credits4GK. Schindler, J. A. Butt, B. Soja, Y. Xin
AbstractIntroduction to mathematical and statistical tools for geospatial data analysis.
ObjectiveThe goal is to familiarise students with the principles and tools of geospatial data analysis, and to enable them to apply those tools to practical tasks.
ContentThe course introduces basic methods of geostatistics and geospatial data analysis. Topics include spatial correlation, auto-correlation and the variogram; surface interpolation (kernel-based, kriging, parametric surface models); spatially adaptive filtering (bilinear, guided filter); spatial stochastic processes and random fields; time series models and spatio-temporal analysis.
