Masterclass: Introduction to GIS Methods in Economics

This three-day course organised by the Wheeler Institute for Business and Development introduced researchers in Economics and related disciplines to Geographic Information System (GIS) methods.

The masterclass was delivered from 13-15 May 2019 at Sammy Ofer Centre / London Business School. The course placed emphasis on “doing GIS” for economics – i.e., turning geographic data, such as satellite images on light density at night, google-data, and road networks into datasets that can be analysed with economists’ statistical and econometric techniques.
