It covers the full spectrum of analytical techniques that are provided within modern Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and related software products.Click here for a PDF extract (first 60 pages, links not enabled).Topics covered in detail include:

  • Geospatial analysis concepts
  • Analytical methodologies and model building
  • Core components of geospatial analysis, including distance and directional analysis, geometrical processing, map algebra, and grid models
  • Exploratory Spatial and Spatio-temporal Data Analysis (ESDA, ESTDA) and spatial statistics, including spatial autocorrelation and spatial regression
  • Surface analysis, including surface form and flow analysis, gridding and interpolation methods, and visibility analysis
  • Network and locational analysis, including shortest path calculation, travelling salesman problems, facility location and arc routing
  • Geocomputational methods, including agent-based modelling, artifical neural networks and evolutionary computing

“Written in an engaging and accessible manner, this book does a marvelous job of balancing its coverage on principles, techniques, and software tools for spatial analysis. … It is truly a tour de force of geospatial analysis and is likely to become a classic …I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning about the latest developments in geospatial analysis and modeling.” Prof D Z Sui, Review in: Annals, Association of American Geographers, April 2009.
