About this book

The purpose of quantitative geography is to train geographers in numeracy and in the vital skills of data collection, processing and interpretation. Increasing numerical sophistication and the proliferation of new techniques have made advances in quantitative geography difficult to assimilate. Yet many statistical techniques derive from simple descriptive statistics. This family of generalised linear models includes many of the techniques usually associated with both continuous and categorical data. Introducing Quantitative Geography describes quantification from first principles to cover all the key elements of quantitative methods. No previous knowledge of statistical procedures is assumed. Worked examples and computer analyses are used to explain measurement, scale, description, models and modelling. Building on this, the author clarifies the intellectual and practical problems presented by advanced research.
