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.
Integrates supporting materials in each chapter, such as code and data, enabling readers to work through the examples themselves. So, the book is right up to date, and as such now is a great time to get your copy! Kernel Density Estimation and Percent Volume.

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. This accessible text has been specifically designed for those readers who are new to Geofomputation as an area of research, showing how complex real-world problems can be solved through the integration of technology, data, and geocomputational methods.
That little spot on its own in central-ish London, by the way, is part of Burgess Park, near Peckham. With the guide, you can create a map like the one below:. With 18 chapters, the book runs to over pages and so has the appropriate depth to cover a diverse, active and fast-evolving field. His research interests are in health, crime and environmental data analysis, and in the development of spatial analytical tools, including Geographically Weighted Regression approach.
