Title: Spatial Analysis: Vector Data

Summary: Understand the use of buffering in vector spatial analysis. Spatial analysis uses spatial information to extract new and additional meaning. Usually spatial analysis is carried out using a GIS application. A GIS normally has spatial analysis tools for feature statistics (e.g. how many vertices make up this polyline?) or geo-processing, such as feature buffering (e.g. which area falls within a certain distance of this feature?). This video looks more closely at vector analysis, using buffering as an example.
