GIS raster datasets are geographic phenomena stored as grid cells or as images. Each cell or pixel contains information that can be modified to generate new raster data. ArcGIS 10.2 has many tools to manage and manipulate raster data information. Intended for students who have taken the class on vector analysis or have explored GIS software in some detail, this class will give hands- on examples of various raster analysis tools.

ArcGIS 10.2 has many different ways to access data sets, display them in a map, and analyze relationships over time and space. US Census data can be integrated with GIS boundary files to analyze the spatial relationships of poverty, ethnicity, environmental risk, and other parameters. Hands-on examples will show how to find and download demographic data, how to combine the data with GIS files, and how to view the data in ArcMap. The session will assist any GIS user who wants to include tabular data in an spatial analysis.
