Spatial Analysis

Spatial analysis is..

TellUs Toolkit
The TellUs Toolkit is an overarching spatial digital platform which allows citizens (or nominated user group/s) to connect to and interact with a variety of spatially referenced data and content using online Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

The overall aim of the project is to develop and test an applied Multi-Criteria-Evaluation (MCE) Spatial Decision Support System (SDSS) methodology for utility network constraint mapping using a case study approach.

Map for England
A study from The University of Manchester examining a broad range of existing government policies and how - with an overarching framework - a Map for England - policy makers could make better judgments about how individual policy proposals interact with and affect development of the country as a whole. It would also increase consistency in appraisal, improve security and resilience, and provide a better understanding of sectoral issues that might complement or conflict with each other.

Climate Proof Cities
The aim of Climate Proof Cities is to build a multi-scale (from the level of buildings via neighbourhoods to city agglomerations) quantitative knowledge base on urban climate, the vulnerability of cities to climate change, and expected impacts of possible future changes in climate.

The University of Manchester collaborated with a wide range of contributors to develop The Joseph Rowntree Foundation's ClimateJust. Climate Just is an information tool designed to help with the delivery of equitable responses to climate change at the local level.

Commute-flow is a brand new geodemographic classification of commuting flows for England and Wales based on origin-destination data from the 2011 Census that has been used to analyse the spatial dynamics of commuting. This toolkit presents data outputs in order to help policy makers use the data to support transport investment decisions and understand patterns of commuting. There is lots of untapped potential for this data to be used to evaluate transport policy and investment decisions so resources are more effectively and efficiently targeted to places of need.

This toolkit includes a series of new classifications of commuting flows from the 2011 Census. The toolkit allows you to explore levels of commuting and compare the level of connectivity of each neighbourhood to major employment centres. The underlying rationale for the research is that the toolkit will help deliver efficiencies in public and private sector investment.
