Applied Spatial Analysis and Policy draws on spatial analysis for the assembly and interpretation of evidence, addressing such issues as crime and deprivation, immigration and demographic restructuring, retail activity and employment change, resource management and environmental improvement.

The journal draws on applied research from such sources as transport, policing, education, health, environment and leisure to offer comparative policy analysis between domains and locations, and to stimulate ideas on the application of spatial analysis methods across varied policy contexts.
