This is the first book to provide sociologists, criminologists, political scientists, and other social scientists with the methodological logic and techniques for doing spatial analysis in their chosen fields of inquiry.

The book contains a wealth of examples as to why these techniques are worth doing, over and above conventional statistical techniques using SPSS or other statistical packages.

GIS is a methodological and conceptual approach that allows for the linking together of spatial data, or data that is based on a physical space, with non-spatial data, which can be thought of as any data that contains no direct reference to physical locations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a first-rate book on GIS and spatial analysis. The authors adopt a "learn-by-doing" approach and make it work by combining lucid explanations of concepts and procedures with rich examples. The book will be a valuable resource to students, teachers, and researchers interested in understanding the spatial dimension of social life." -Steven F. Messner, Distinguished Teaching Professor of Sociology, University at Albany, SUNY

"This book is an excellent introduction to the latest tools and techniques for using spatial analyses to study behavior. It is written in a clear and step-by-step fashion with ample illustrations and enables the reader to quickly engage the complex tools of GIS including details concerning appropriate statistical analyses which go well beyond plotting data on maps." -Harold D. Holder, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist, Prevention Research
