Research and Markets: Geographic Information Analysis, 2nd Edition: Clear, Up-To-Date Coverage of Methods for Analyzing Geographical Information in a GIS Context

DUBLIN — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 6, 2010Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7d3d2b/geographic_informa) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book " Geographic Information Analysis, 2nd Edition" to their offering.

Clear, up-to-date coverage of methods for analyzing geographical information in a GIS context

Geographic Information Analysis, Second Edition is fully updated to keep pace with the most recent developments of spatial analysis in a geographic information systems (GIS) environment. Still focusing on the universal aspects of this science, this revised edition includes new coverage on geovisualization and mapping as well as recent developments using local statistics.

Building on the fundamentals, this book explores such key concepts as spatial processes, point patterns, and autocorrelation in area data, as well as in continuous fields. Also addressed are methods for combining maps and performing computationally intensive analysis. New chapters tackle mapping, geovisualization, and local statistics, including the Moran Scatterplot and Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR).
