Epidemiological data is often correlated in both space and time, which results in spatial and temporal dependencies that need to be accounted for in any statistical analysis of the data. Furthermore, the growth of remote sensing and big data means that there are now many, freely available satellite based products, but how to access, process and use this data can be challenging. In this 1.5 day workshop, we will explore using the Google Earth Engine to access and download remote sensed resources. We will also introduce a number of different statistical packages which can be used to take into account such dependencies.
