IST 380D 3310 1 Big Data and Locational Analytics
This course focuses on the use of Big Data and Location Analytics and their potential for increasing organizational value. The enormous volume, velocity, and variety of data that exists, and is created every day, along with the increased awareness of the value gained by analyzing data in a geographic context, support the ability to discover location based patterns and relationships in big data that enable improved decision making. As a result, students will acquire the analytic and technical skills to utilize big data in a location analytic framework to meet organizational and end-user needs. The course concludes with the delivery of either a location analytic report or a prototype solution that addresses a real-world problem.
