Spatial Data Analysis

June 20, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Where We Are Matters

Location matters in so much of what we do: logistics, supply chains, marketing analytics all depend on a sense of location. In the Spatial Data Analysis Workshop you will learn basic techniques for understanding the impact of geography on your organization.  Participants will use both ArcGIS Online and ESRI Business Analysts to address real world problems.

All software is in the online environment; participants will receive a free license to each platform with their participation in the Workshop.


Brent Never (Ph.D., Indiana University) is an Associate Professor of Public Affairs at the Henry W. Bloch School of Management. His research considers the spatial and geographic implications of a decentralized human service system. Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial regression methods, he has worked to identify communities underserved by human services. He has also worked to highlight clusters of financially distressed nonprofit organizations, those most likely to go out of business in the near future raising the question as to who is served by financially ‘sick’ human service providers.


Course discounts are available for UMKC faculty, staff, and students. Contact us for details.
