This student focused book: The book acts both as a reference guide to the field and as a guide to help you get to know aspects of it.
Each chapter includes a worked example with geocomlutation instructions. Chapters provide highly applied and practical discussions of: With 18 chapters, the book runs to over pages and so has the appropriate depth to cover a diverse, active and fast-evolving field. My library Help Advanced Book Search. He also has interests in the software tools used to develop such approaches, including R.
So, the book is right up to date, and as such now practica a great time to get your copy!
Visualisation and exploratory spatial data analysis Space time modelling Spatial algorithms Spatial regression and statistics Enabling interactions geocomputxtion 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.

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.
This accessible text has been specifically designed for those readers who are new to Geocomputation as an area of research, showing how complex real-world problems can be solved through the integration of technology, data, and geocomputational methods. Microsimulation Modelling for Social Scientists. That little spot on its own in central-ish London, by the way, is part of Burgess Park, near Peckham.
