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.
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. Selected pages Table of Contents.

Integrates supporting materials in each chapter, such as code and data, enabling readers to work through the examples themselves.
That little spot on its own in central-ish London, by the way, is part of Burgess Park, near Peckham. He studied Mathematics at the University of Durham and Medical Statistics at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, and has worked in a number of universities, holding the Chair in Human Geography at Liverpool University before taking up his current position.
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.
I wrote a chapter in the book, on open source GIS.

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.
Geographically Weighted Generalised Linear Modelling. This student focused book:. Each chapter includes a worked example with step-by-step instructions.
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.

His research interests are in health, crime and environmental data analysis, and in the development of spatial analytical tools, including Geographically Weighted Regression approach.
