In this course, over 40+ hands-on and practical lectures, I will help you master the most common and important geo-processing tasks that can be performed with ArcGIS Desktop, one of THE MOST important GIS software tools available.

I will also show you the kind of questions answered through Spatial Analysis & data used.


First of all, we’ll start some basic GIS tasks like “Zooming”.

Then, we’ll move into more complex processing tasks like “Geo-Statistics”.

We’ll also deal with some theoretical concepts related to Spatial Data Analysis, and then we’ll focus on implementing some of the most common GIS techniques (all the way showing you how to execute these tasks in ArcGIS Desktop).

The stuff you’ll learn from this course will be extremely useful in terms of you being able to implement it on future Spatial Data projects you’ll be working on (in a variety of disciplines from ecology to engineering).

About your Instructor

I have completed a PhD in Forest Ecology and Conservation from the University of Cambridge, UK. In my PhD I used a combination of remote sensing data such as optical data, LiDAR, aerial imagery and radar data for quantifying the impact of forest cover change on carbon stocks and biodiversity in tropical Asia. I have worked extensively in different parts of tropical Asia- Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia and the Philippines. I used extensive statistical, machine learning and image processing techniques for my research and have an intermediate level proficiency in R and Python programming languages. I am also proficient in the use of GIS softwares like QGIS and ArcGIS and remote sensing tools like ENVI. I have several peer reviewed publications in well-regarded journals to my credit. Details of publications can be found here: In January 2017, I launched Minerva's Data Lab, an endeavor hat seeks to provide information, resources and training relating to machine learning, data science, spatial data analysis, geographic information system (GIS), remote sensing (Landsat, LiDAR, hyperspectral and radar data). I am available for 1-1 consulting, tutoring, training or general discussions about topics relating to R programming language, Python, Matlab, QGIS, ArcGIS and remote sensing tools such as IDRISI and ENVI.
