    • Generate basic raster calculations
    • Combining vector and raster data into analyses
    • Create lists of addresses and create new 'geo-coded' datasets
    • Perform geo-statistical analysis with your data
    • Generate surface density and slope raster files for use in nearness and cluster analysis
    • Create and work with temporal data to map change over time
    • Understand key considerations in how, when and if you should use data for analysis and map creation (best practices)
    • Create FGDC compliant metadata (documentation of your data)
