About this book
Two recurring themes in GIS are the potential that GIS technology has for easily accessible and sophisticated analysis of spatially referenced data; and the limited functionality of standard analysis options and their inadequacy for research needs. "Spatial Analysis in GIS" showcases state-of-the-art reviews from acknowledged experts and discusses current problems and prospects in the integration of and interface between spatial analysis and GIS.
Integrating GIS and spatial analysis - an overview of the issues; review of statistical spatial analysis in GIS; methods of spatial analysis and linkages to GIS; two exploratory space-time-attribute pattern analyzers relevant to GIS; spatial point process modelling in a GIS environment; GIS and spatial analysis - applications; urban analysis in a GIS environment - population density modelling using ARC/INFO; a surface model approach to the representation of population-related social indicators.
