About the Authors
  • Are there geographic clusters of disease cases, or hotspots of crime? Can the geography of air quality be matched to where people hospitalized for respiratory complaints actually live? Spatial data is data about the world where the attribute of interest and its location on the earth's surface are recorded. This comprehensive overview of the subject shows how the above questions can be tackled. It is written for students and researchers in geography, economics, social science, the environmental sciences and statistics.

    • Provides an extensive treatment of the scientific and policy context for using spatial data analysis
    • Complete overview - from fundamental problems of representing the geographical world to how to explore and model spatial data
    • Clear enough for many undergraduates to get a firm grasp on the subject whilst containing enough challenging material to allow graduate students to get a strong understanding of the field
