He also has interests in the software tools used to develop such approaches, including R. The book acts both as a reference guide to the field and practiical a guide to help you get to know aspects of it.

Integrates supporting materials in each chapter, such as code and data, enabling readers to work przctical the examples themselves. 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 prime and guidance for further reading.

The Future of Applied Geocomputation. 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.


Chapters provide highly applied and practical discussions of: AgentBased Modeling and Geographical Information. With the guide, you can create a map like the one below:.

Each chapter has a different author, and includes topics such as spatial data visualisation with R, agent-based modelling, kernel density estimation, spatial z models and the Python Spatial Analysis library, PySAL.

That little spot on its own in central-ish London, by the way, is part of Burgess Park, near Peckham. 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.

So, the book is right up to date, and as such now is a great time to get your copy! Geocomputation is the use of software and computing power to solve complex spatial problems.


In particular, his work has extended a pratcical 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.

With 18 chapters, the book runs to over pages and so has the appropriate depth to cover a diverse, active and fast-evolving field.
