Data Linkage Techniques (GIS)
Many public sector organisations face challenges with making the most of their data and are missing opportunities to be more effective. This data analytics training course is aimed at organisations from the public sector, and is a free course to allow employees to obtain the relevant skills required in using data. No prior knowledge is required.
In this session, Professor Andrew Lovett (University of East Anglia) will give attendees a brief understanding of GIS and the data linkage techniques that can be used to integrate information from different sources to help address policy questions. The workshop will consist of an introductory talk and a series of practical exercises (using the ArcGIS software) that will allow attendees to put their acquired skills into practice. Attendees will then be able to participate in a closing Q&A session.
Attendees will be given the opportunity to network after the session, with lunch provided.
There are two more events in the "Empowering the Public Sector: Delving Into Data Analytics" series:
Thursday 12th January (AM) - An overview of Agent Based Modelling (ABM)
Thursday 12th January (PM) - Predictive modelling: Shifting from reaction to prevention
