This subject introduces students to using geographic information systems (GIS) for spatial analysis in property development and planning. Students develop the skills to use standard ArcGIS software to manage and manipulate spatial data, create multidimensional thematic maps, perform simple statistical and other analyses of spatial relationships, and present spatial information in a form relevant to policy, regulatory, and development decisions. The subject introduces demographic, economic, environmental, topographic, and other physical data, and enables students to learn how to use these various data types to solve site analysis, development feasibility, market analysis, master planning, and social and economic planning problems.
