The first discusses the various ways we can divide the use of GIS and how this affects project planning. The second part explores best practices for data collection and creation, and points users towards commonly used geospatial data warehouses. The final section examines traditional and emerging forms of geospatial analysis (e.g., visibility analysis, least cost path analysis). The webinar's content is oriented towards practical solutions and test workflows, with particular attention paid to cultural heritage management applications.
