  • I found most spatial data books & manuals vague

  • There are no courses that actually teach me how it’s actually done

  • Available resources are expensive & I can’t afford them

  • I want to get a job in the field of GIS and geospatial analysis

  • I work in the field of ecology or quantitative social sciences or hydrology or civil engineering or geography

If you found yourself in one of these situations, then..


Over the past few months, I have published multiple courses on Udemy around this topic which will be tremendously helpful to you & most important of all AFFORDABLE!

Today, I’ve created yet another powerful resource for you!

In this course, over 50+ hands-on and practical lecture, I will help you master the most common and important geo-processing tasks that can be performed with ArcGIS Desktop, one of THE MOST important GIS software tools available.

I will also show you the kind of questions answered through Spatial Analysis & data used.


First of all, we’ll start some basic GIS tasks like “Zooming”.

Then, we’ll move into more complex processing tasks like “Geo-Statistics”.

We’ll also deal with some theoretical concepts related to Spatial Data Analysis, and then we’ll focus on implementing some of the most common GIS techniques (all the way showing you how to execute these tasks in ArcGIS Desktop).

The stuff you’ll learn from this course will be extremely useful in terms of you being able to implement it on future Spatial Data projects you’ll be working on (in a variety of disciplines from ecology to engineering).



I am an Oxford University MPhil (Geography and Environment) graduate.

I recently finished my PhD at Cambridge University (Tropical Ecology and Conservation).

I have SEVERAL YEARS OF EXPERIENCE in analyzing REAL LIFE DATA from different sources in ArcGIS Desktop.

I’ve also published my work in many international peer reviewed journals.


My course is a HANDS ON TRAINING with REAL data.

It’s a step by step course covering both the THEORY & APPLICATION of Spatial Data Analysis.

I teach Practical Stuff that you can learn quickly and start implementing NOW.

This is one of the most comprehensive courses on this topic.

I advise you to take advantage of it & enroll in the course TODAY!

TAKE ACTION TODAY! I will personally support you and ensure your experience with this course is a success. I answer all questions put to me and guide my students when they get stuck. 

Please make sure you have access to ArcGIS before enrolling

What it was about, was really good explained, so thank you Minerva. However, I dissapointed, because what I felt really important to learn is how to create these shape files from 0... Its ok, that how we can analyse them, but how to create polygons, lines, and points from nothing to end them up in a shapefile, which we can use later for creating maps? This what I missed. Otherwise, thank you for the course and for your understandable way of communication Minerva! :)

I thoroughly enjoyed this great course, they teach in a very fun way, not at all like a traditional code teaching style!great course helped me a lot in learning. i will recommend all newcomers.

Partha21 August 2020

It was an overall satisfying course.Taught me many nuances of ArcGIS. Exhaustive study materialsCan definitely recommend to others for enhancing their skills. Thanks and Regards to Minerva Ma'am and Udemy.

Himadri21 August 2020

The brilliance in this course is that the concepts are taught amazingly and are not at all too difficult to understand even for beginners!

Faizul19 August 2020

This course is best for beginners. It provides enough practice with lots of problems. Overall it is an excellent course. I loved it.

Pammi27 February 2020

Just amazing! The best ArcGIS course you can start with. I wish I've started with this course when I was just beginning. Highly recommended for beginners and those looking for a refresh like me! Awesome to brush up the very basics.

Mitu26 February 2020

Excellent ArcGIS course for Spatial Analysis. Smart designed covering many subjects in a short time. Just hope to attend another related, next level course from the same instructor.

Rifat25 February 2020

I really loved it. The instructor is great and passionate! I hope she will make more courses in the future and I would like to thank her for the time she spent to make this course. I feel confidence about spatial data analysis using ArcGIS now!

Ishrak23 February 2020

This is the best online course I've taken by far. The instructor is amazing and the content is challenging but very satisfying to complete. For anyone that wants to understand ArcGIS better, I would recommend this course.

Sujit12 February 2020

ArcGIS Desktop Version is not available for download. It makes it difficult to take up this course with hands on training.

Abdulkader10 January 2020

it's more of a technical issue; some of the features don't work on my ArcMap because I have the basic license. But overall it is a great collection of lectures and videos

Anshu29 December 2019

It was a good experience. I would suggest the instructor should explain more about the dataset and when to apply which command.

STEPHEN6 December 2019

Very interesting and exciting. i really enjoyed your lesson I've learnt more than expected...You are the best

Yahaya4 December 2019

The lecture gives a good undertanding of the course, there is need for more improvement on the delivery.

Sourabh4 December 2019

This course provide me a introductory knowledge of spatial data analysis using ArcGIS which was must needed for me as the beginner.
