Workshop: Introduction to GIS Methods in Business Research

This non-for credit three-day course introduced researchers in Economics and related disciplines to Geographic Information System (GIS) methods. A highly demanded annual series, this course was the Wheeler Institute’s first ever teaching session on zoom that connected LBS PhD students and faculty with the University of Montevideo and data scientists in Stockholm.

The course placed emphasis on “doing GIS” for business research – 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. 

The last GIS workshop took place in Mai 2019 at Sammy Ofer Centre, London Business School.
