Network Analysis using GIS

[ Book online ]

The representation and analysis of both infrastructure (gas, electrical, water) and transport networks (road, rail, bus) in GIS requires specific data models and analysis methods. This course will introduce the concepts that underpin network analysis in modern GIS, along with their application to real world network problems. Participants will learn how to construct full network models from standard spatial datasets and become familiar with the tools required to check and ensure their integrity. Network analysis procedures will be presented and applied to real world networks, e.g. finding the shortest optimal route between locations.

Course Outline

  • Understand the concepts of networks and network datasets
  • Learn how to create network datasets and define their properties
  • Find out how to perform network analysis
  • Appreciate how network analysis can be used to solve real world problems such as routing, shortest path and shortest time
