About this book

This book takes both a retrospective and prospective view of the field of spatial analysis by combining selected reprints of classic articles by Arthur Getis with current observations by leading experts in the field. Four main aspects are highlighted, dealing with spatial analysis, pattern analysis, local statistics as well as illustrative empirical applications. Researchers and students will gain an appreciation of  Getis' methodological contributions  to spatial analysis and the broad impact of the methods he has helped pioneer on an impressively broad array of  disciplines including spatial epidemiology, demography, economics, and ecology. The volume is a compilation of high impact original contributions, as evidenced by citations, and the latest thinking on the field by leading scholars. This makes the book ideal for advanced seminars and courses in spatial analysis as well as a key resource for researchers seeking a comprehensive overview of recent advances and future directions in the field.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book belongs is ‘an informed readership in universities, research organisations, and policy-making institutions throughout the world’. … this volume, with its retrospective flavour, presents a friendlier face. … provides a more accessible context for the demanding papers because many key ideas are introduced and developed from first principles in the original papers by Gertis. … the book is ‘ideal for advanced seminars and courses’. … provide useful additional reading for an advanced class in spatial analysis.” (David O’Sullivan, Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design, Vol. 38, 2011)

“The book is a tribute to the methodological contributions of Professor Arthur Getis in spatial and point pattern analysis and the development of local statistics. … provide researchers and advanced students a historical background of Professor Getis’s impact on modern spatial and point pattern data analysis, as well as new directions, including data driven approaches for specifying neighbours, spatial filtering models, and spatial interaction modelling. … This volume will be most appreciated by applied researchers and advanced students of spatial data analysis.” (Dayton M. Lambert, Papers in Regional Science, Vol. 91 (1), March, 2012)
