Spatio-Temporal Analysis in GIS Environments (STAGE)
The DoD has identified the need for the integration of state-of-the-art spatio-temporal statistical methods within existing Geographic Information System (GIS) packages to create an integrated toolbox. The SBIR topic description has outlined three major requirements for the GIS-integrated spatio-temporal statistical analysis toolbox, i.e., (1) it must work seamlessly with the GIS software; (2) it must be implemented in Python or Visual Basic to enable an efficient analytical process; and (3) it must incorporate innovative statistical methods to deal with spatio-temporal data sets with missing or messy data. To build a GIS-integrated toolbox addressing these needs and requirements, Architecture Technology Corporation (ATC) proposes an innovative approach called Spatio-Temporal Analysis in GIS Environments (STAGE). The Phase I STAGE SBIR effort will design add-on software modules for a commercial GIS product that will imbue it with powerful capabilities for sophisticated exploratory and inferential analysis of spatio-temporal data sets without leaving the GIS environment.
