Overview

Timberlake Consultants invite you to attend the following 1-day hands-on course to be held in New York on 5 September 2014.

This one-day course is intended for the scientist needing the important spatial data visualization and analysis tools available in Stata. Stata data for mapping is framed within a study area of a two-dimensional plane. Coordinate and attribute files used in Stata mapping will be discussed. Special Stata programming and statistical features needed to manage spatial data in preparation to creating thematic maps will be presented. Five thematic map types will be presented in detail. Dot maps, proportional symbol maps, diagram maps, choropleth maps, multivariate maps will be presented and created by participants using data they prepare. Archives for shape files and data will be investigated and used. Economic, health and demographic data will be prepared and presented by the participants.

 

As much data has spatial dependence, in the afternoon there will be a summary of the Stata tools available in the analysis of spatial interactions starting with the creation of grids covering the study area. Kernel matrices which capture the probability density of events are generated. This important topic will be surveyed for the participants ending with a discussion of global and local spatial autoregressive models: autocorrelation, Moran’s I, using kernel estimators and spatial weights matrices edge effects. Scatter plots and cluster maps visualize the analysis.

The day will be hands-on, including representative exercises. Commands to allow you to graph each type of thematic map and variograms for one-dimensional and two-dimensional data will be programmed.

This course follows the Stata Elements course on the preceding day, 4 September, a 1-day course that provides an introduction to Stata and will cover the prerequisites needed for day of Thematic mapping and Spatial analysis. The course is designed for new or beginner-level users of Stata.
