This report is organized into chapters that contain the following:

Slides used during lectures,

Guidance on the use of Arcview,

Introduction to filtering in Arcview,

Conventional and spatial correlation in Arcview,

Tools for fuzzification in Arcview,

Data and instructions for creating using ArcSDM for simple weights-of-evidence, fuzzy logic, and neural network models for Carlin-type gold deposits in central Nevada,

Reading list on spatial modeling, and

Selected student spatial-modeling posters from the laboratory exercises.
