**Map analysis and modelling**

Prof. Qiming Zhou Map analysis and modelling “What distinguishes a GIS from other types of information systems are its spatial analysis functions. These functions use the spatial and non-spatial attribute data in the GIS database to answer questions about the real world”. Aronoff, 1989, pp 189. Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

4
Prof. Qiming Zhou Analysis or modelling? The advantage a GIS can provide is the capability for transforming the original spatial data to answer user’s questions. Such transformations are often referred to as “data analysis” capabilities in GIS. However, most so-called “analysis” capabilities of today’s GIS are in fact data manipulation and maintenance functions, very rare of them are actually tell us something by “analysing” spatial data.

**Definitions What is “analysis”?**

Prof. Qiming Zhou Definitions What is “analysis”? Analysis specifies data transformations which are analytical. “Analysis” is the process to resolve and separate the reference system into its parts to illuminate their nature and interrelationships, and to determine general principles of behaviour. What is “modelling”? Modelling specifies data transformations which involve the synthesis of information. The “synthesis” is the process to put together expressions of general principles with representations of parts of the reference system so as to form a replica that exhibits behaviour similar to that of the reference system.

**Analysis versus modelling**

Prof. Qiming Zhou Analysis versus modelling A theory is the product of analysis. A model is the product of syntheses, using theory. Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

7
**Spatial analysis and GIS**

Prof. Qiming Zhou Spatial analysis and GIS Geographical analysis allows the study of real-world processes by developing and applying models. A GIS enhances this process by providing tools which can be combined in a meaningful sequences to develop new models. These models may reveal new or previously unidentified relationships thus increasing our understanding of the real world. Results of geographical data analysis can be communicated with maps, reports, or both. Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

8
Prof. Qiming Zhou Geographical model A GIS database is a model of the real world that can be used to mimic certain aspects of reality. A model must represent certain entities and relationship among them. A model may be represented in words, in mathematical equations, or as a set of spatial relations presented by maps or GIS. Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

9
Prof. Qiming Zhou The nature of models Models are designed to mimic only selected aspects of reality. A more complex model may or may not provide “better” answer. A model can be tested and manipulated more conveniently at a faster (or slower) rate and less expensively than the condition it mimics. Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

10
Prof. Qiming Zhou The use of models Models are used when it is more convenient or it is not possible to collect the information directly. e.g. It is convenient to measure road distance on a map. e.g. The height a forest will reach in 100 years time is impossible to measure directly. A model is used to understand what happened in the past and to present scenario on what consequence might be with the present conditions. Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

**Organising geographical data for analysis**

Prof. Qiming Zhou Organising geographical data for analysis Data layers A data layer consists of a set of logically related geographical features and their attributes Representations of a data layer Raster grid, overlay (grid cells) Vector coverage (point, line, polygon) Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

12
**GIS analysis functions**

Prof. Qiming Zhou GIS analysis functions A GIS provides analysis and modelling capability by means of its analysis functions. GIS analysis functions are capable of processing spatial and attribute data together. Based on GIS data model, GIS analysis functions can be categorised into vector and raster analysis functions. Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

**Vector analysis functions**

Prof. Qiming Zhou Vector analysis functions Geographical query (introduced previously) Data manipulation Topological overlay Buffering Terrain analysis (to be introduced later) Network Analysis (to be introduced later) Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

14
Prof. Qiming Zhou Data manipulation Mostly for manipulate spatial data to fit into application specifications. For example, in working with area objects to aggregate areas based on attributes: Commonly a three-step procedure is used: Reclassify areas by a single attribute or some combination; Dissolve boundaries between areas of same type by delete the arc between two polygons if the relevant attributes are the same in both polygons; Merge polygons into large objects by recording the sequence of line segments that connect to form the boundary and assigning new ID numbers to each new object.

16
Prof. Qiming Zhou Topological overlay Suppose individual layers have planar enforcement, when two layers are combined (overlaid or superimposed), the result must have planar enforcement as well. New intersection must be calculated and created wherever two lines cross and a line across an area object will create two new area objects. When topological overlay occurs, spatial relationships between objects area updated for the new, combined map. Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

**Buffering A buffer can be constructed around a point, line or area.**

Prof. Qiming Zhou Buffering A buffer can be constructed around a point, line or area. Buffering algorithm creates a new area enclosing the buffered object. The application of this buffering algorithms fundamentally addresses the creation of zones around the target. e.g. protected zone around lakes, reservoirs or streams zone of noise pollution around highways or airports service zone around bus route groundwater pollution zone around waste site Spatial Analysis Spatial Analysis

**Raster analysis functions**

24
Prof. Qiming Zhou Local functions Local functions operate on the values of all the attributes relating to each cell (location). The operations are independent of the effects of attribute values from neighbouring cells. A local function results in a new grid as a function of one or more input grids.
