Geospatial Analysis

Geospatial analysis is analysis using geospatial data, which is data with some sort of geographical component. For example: an address, longitude and latitude coordinates, or a state/country name. Geospatial analysis can include a wide variety of methods, including mapping or calculations based upon area and distance.
