The purpose of quantitative geography is to train geographers in numeracy and in the vital skills of data collection, processing and interpretation.
Introducting Quantitative Geography describes quantification from first principles to cover all the key elements of quantitative geography. No previous knowledge of statistical procedures is assumed. Worked examples and computer analyses are used to explain measurement, scale, description, models and modelling. Building on this, the book explores and clarifies the intellectual and practical problems presented by numerical and technological advances in the field.
`The book is well-written and produced, and can be confidently recommended to any geographer seeking a guide to the technicalities of quantitative geography.' - Geography
