This course introduces participants to the Spatial Analyst extension by working through several projects. The first project illustrates basic raster functionality by locating the best site for a solar installation. The second project demonstrates more advanced analysis by determining wildland fire hazard zones. A third project explores the process of analyzing water tables and the impact of irrigation, providing an opportunity to look at the Hydrology sample provided for ArcGIS. The final projects combine the skills learned in earlier projects to locate sites for elephant conservation zones in Kenya and to do least-cost path analysis to find the best corridor between an elephant herd and a reserve area. Students will also learn the basics of ModelBuilder and will use this for some of the projects. Juniper GIS courses are based on real projects, with an emphasis on the skills needed to successfully and efficiently complete your projects.

Topics include: Understanding Raster GIS; Interpolating surfaces; Using DEM elevation files; Using Map Algebra for spatial analysis; Using the Raster Calculator; Cost Distance Analysis; Analysis properties and commands; Distance, Viewshed and Proximity Grids; Using GRID commands; Hydrology in ArcGIS; Using ModelBuilder; Site Suitability Analysis; Least-cost path and corridor analysis.
