Abstract

OpenGeoDa is the open source successor to GeoDa, a software package designed to introduce non-experts to spatial data analysis. GeoDa was developed under the auspices of the NSF funded Center for Spatially Integrated Social Science (CSISS) [4]. Since its release in 2003, "Legacy GeoDa" has gained over 40,000 individual users and has become a standard to teach introductory spatial data analysis. GeoDa (and Open GeoDa) was conceived as enabling researchers to move from geovisualization to exploratory data analysis, the study of spatial autocorrelation and ending up with spatial regression modeling.
