Work Flow for Conducting Geospatial Analysis
The geospatial analysis work flow presented here can support optimization during environmental project life cycle stages. The following sections provide an overview of the work flow steps and an introduction to exploratory data analysis methods. Guidance is also offered on how to select geospatial methods based on the data available, project needs, and the CSM. The Methods section provides detailed guidance on simple, more complex, and advanced methods. Once the appropriate methods are selected, geospatial predictions can be generated. Finally, this guidance shows how to evaluate the accuracy of geospatial interpolation results and how to use geospatial analysis results. Flow charts are also provided help select an appropriate method.
