13 July 14:00-15:30 BST

Hosted by Linda Peters

Geospatial is playing a key role today in data science and statistics. With this year’s WSC theme of Statistics and Data Science for a Better World... and so many great sessions that call out the importance of data science, we thought it appropriate to focus the Esri session on the Power of GIS and spatial analysis. 

In this session, we will look at Big Data Analysis with GIS, Data Engineering, and Advancements in Spatial Analysis including time series forecasting. 

We will introduce the new SAS-ArcGIS Bridge and take a look at the latest on R-ArcGIS and SDMX. Finally, we will leave you with some examples of the integration of GIS and Statistics to help with Covid as well as the SDGs. 

Don’t miss this session that will get you comfortable with the vocabulary of spatial analysis and using GIS and spatial data science in your statistics work every day.
