Geographically Weighted Generalised Linear Modelling. That little spot on its own in central-ish London, by the way, is part of Burgess Park, near Peckham. Selected pages Table of Contents. Contents About the Authors. All chapters are uniform in design and each includes an introduction, case studies, conclusions – drawing together the generalities of the introduction and specific findings from the case study application — and guidance for further reading.

This is the applied primer for Geocomputation in the social sciences. Visualisation and exploratory spatial data analysis Space time modelling Spatial algorithms Spatial regression and statistics Enabling interactions through the use of neogeography All chapters are uniform in design and each includes an introduction, case studies, conclusions – drawing together the generalities of the introduction and specific findings from the case study application — and guidance for further reading.
The book has only just been published and I was able to slip in brand new screenshots and slightly updated instructions just before publication, as QGIS 2. Geographical Agents in Three Dimensions.
This accessible text has been specifically designed x those readers who are new to Geocomputation practial an area of research, showing how complex real-world problems can be solved through the integration of technology, data, and geocomputational methods. This student focused book:. Each chapter has a different author, and includes topics such as spatial data visualisation with R, agent-based modelling, kernel density estimation, spatial interaction models and the Python Spatial Analysis library, PySAL.

In particular, his work has extended a tradition of area classification within Geography where he has developed an empirically informed critique of the ways in which geodemographic methods can be refined for effective yet ethical use in public resource allocation applications. Chapters provide highly applied and practical discussions of: Practicwl 18 chapters, the book runs to over pages and so has the appropriate depth to cover a diverse, active and fast-evolving field.
