The widespread use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) has significantly increased the demand for knowledge about spatial analytical techniques across a range of disciplines. As growing numbers of researchers realise they are dealing with spatial data, the demand for specialised statistical and mathematical methods designed to deal with spatial data is undergoing a rapid increase.
Responding to this demand, The Handbook of Spatial Analysis is a comprehensive and authoritative discussion of issues and techniques in the field of Spatial Data Analysis. Its principal focus is on: "why the analysis of spatial data needs separate treatment" the main areas of spatial analysis "the key debates within spatial analysis" examples of the application of various spatial analytical techniques "problems in spatial analysis" and areas for future research Aimed at an international audience of academics.
The text offers a solid platform for senior and graduate student research projects, and educators will also find it useful for updating course materials and developing practical applications from the examples, references, and other material. -- Robert J. Legg JOURNAL OF REGIONAL SCIENCE 20110118
