Practical, accessible careful and interesting, this greatly updated and revised volume brings the subject up-to-date and explains in bite sized chunks the hows and whys of modern day geographical study that begins to brings together physical and human approaches again in a new synthesis.-- Danny Dorling
This collection is a valuable resource for geography students and researchers at all levels, in human geography, physical geography, and GIScience. It stands apart from many methods texts by speaking to the complete research process - from conceptualizing and designing geographical research, to collecting and analyzing many different forms of evidence, to representing results and finding in diverse ways. The volume is noteworthy in the breadth of methods it includes, spanning classic approaches that have been foundational to geographical scholarship and some of the discipline's newest and most innovative methodological practices.
