    This course guides students through five types of applications in Surface Analysis using the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst software extension. The course focuses on the various methods and uses of displaying continuous, or grid, data over a surface. With the skills acquired from this course, students will be able to map data such as elevation, rainfall and temperature ? data that differs from one location to the next on the surface of the earth. The five types of analyses covered in this course are: mapping distance, density, interpolation, surface analysis, and statistics. This course will conclude with a short project where the student uses the skills he/she has acquired to perform surface analysis tasks to the local area.
