Qualitative GIS: An Introduction
Domain: A1 Knowledge base

TACE: A - Acquisition

Format: Workshop
Suitable for: All

GIS is concerned with the collection, storage, analysis and representation of various spatial data (i.e. data that can be linked to points on the earth’s surface). Those interested in Qualitative GIS have sought to incorporate alternative, more qualitative characteristics of place than have traditionally been included. Qualitative GIS has the potential to help researchers explore the social processes that help create places. It may be of interest to those working in a broad range of fields, where it is important to understand how people feel about the places in which they live and work. This session will provide an overview of Qualitative GIS to those who have not necessarily had any experience of GIS and will assume no prior knowledge. Note: This workshop is not a practical session on using GIS. You may wish to attend the introductory lecture on GIS and the associated practical sessions.
