Automated Spatial Analysis using Geographic Information Systems - GEOGY538 (2022)

Automated GIS, using programming or scripts, are extremely powerful compared to the 'point and click' environment, and are the most practical method for the spatial analysis of large data sets. GIS professionals are expected have the skills to write their own scripts, as well as execute and manipulate existing scripts. In this paper, students are introduced to programming with Python and using the ArcPy library. No prior experience in programming is required, and students will quickly learn to automate GIS analysis. Students are given the opportunity to develop GIS scripts for their own choice of application. This paper is required for the graduate specialisation in GIS.
