This workshop, taught by DataLab’s geospatial specialist Dr. Michele Tobias, provides an introduction to SQL for working with spatial data. We’ll use a graphical user interface (GUI) and explore examples of common analysis processes specific for handling spatial data.

After this workshop learners should be able to:
– execute base SQL commands
– explain basic relational database concepts
– identify the unique fields required to work with spatial data in a relational database
– use common spatial SQL commands, such as spatial joining
