Software and support

The Academic Data Centre provides walk-in support and consulting for statistical and geospatial methods as well as for the software packages SPSS, SAS, Stata, R and ArcGIS. We can help:

  • decide on the appropriate statistical method to use
  • figure out statistics homework
  • set up data for analysis
  • create maps and graphs
  • perform custom statistical programming
  • locate data to analyze or statistics to help support an argument.

We have a small reference collection of software manuals and statistical methodology books that can be used in the Centre. We provide full support and have reference material on hand for working with the following programs:

  • ArcView GIS
  • Beyond 20/20 Browser
  • R
  • SAS
  • SPSS
  • Stata 12
  • StatTransfer 11

We also work with faculty to help them incorporate data into their courses. Services include preparing custom teaching datasets, speaking to classes on data sources or methods, working with GA's and TA's.
