About this book

This text is concerned with the subject of spatial scale in the context of geographical research using GIS (Geographical Information Systems) and provides an overview of the subject. It includes comprehensive coverage of the characterization of multiscale spatial variability and practical approaches to multiscale modelling for GIS. It is arranged into four sections; fractal analysis, geostatics and remote sensing, modifiable areal unit problem and multiscale modelling.
