Understand the Refugee Crisis using Link Analysis

Link analysis is a powerful analysis technique available in Insights for ArcGIS. TheĀ new Learn ArcGIS lesson, Understand the Refugee Crisis Using Link Analysis, uses real-world data from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to perform an in-depth analysis on one of the greatest humanitarian crises facing our world.

In the lesson, you will use Insights to create a map showing the movement of refugees and other persons of concern, and use charts and tables to dive deeper into the data to gain a better understanding of the patterns that emerge as you analyze the data.
