  Introduction to Spatial Analysis in the Social
             Facilitator: Paul A. Peters PhD, Statistics Canada

     Join us for a one-day workshop introducing geographic information systems (GIS) and
  geospatial analysis for social scientists. This one day short-course will involve a lecture and
demonstration in the morning session and hands-on laboratories in the afternoon session. Given
   the time limitations of the course the introduction to this topic will be brief, and is suited to
researchers who have little or no previous experience in geospatial analysis. References will be
    provided to participants for spatial analysis methods and the various software packages
    available. There is no expectation of prior knowledge of spatial data analysis models or
 techniques or experience with specific software packages. Basic knowledge of univariate and
                            multivariate statistical methods is assumed.
