Live Webinar: An Introduction to Spatial Analysis Tools for Supply Chain Activities
Learn how spatial analytic tools are used to solve complex supply chain problems and potentially benefit other professional fields such as as asset and contract management.
The field of supply chain management has experienced the rapid diffusion of new technologies in the area of spatial analytics. Spatial analytics enable the presentation and evaluation of data in a geographic context. The ‘layering’ of multiple datapoints on a specific position on the globe provides a powerful tool to evaluate business activities. The purpose of this webinar is to illustrate the how spatial analytic tools are used to solve complex supply chain problems and potentially benefit other professional fields such as as asset and contract management.
In this program attendees will learn about the practical application of spatial analysis tools, with a focus on Esri’s ArcGIS Online, to address supply chain, asset, and contract management issues.
