Geographic Measurement and Quantitative Analysis

Robert J. Earickson , John M. Harlin

Editura: Prentice Hall
The text does not assume set notation or calculus, and it presents a manageable body of topics and techniques for a one-semester or two-quarter course.With a balance of human and physical examples, coverage of computer programs for solving numerical problems, and a practical focus on the working procedures of geographers, this text is a welcome choice for courses in geographic statistics and introductory quantitative methods. It is designed to instruct students in the methods that geographers apply-from the inception of a problem to the interpretation of results from statistical procedures. Computer applications in SAS and SPSS-X - the most popular statistical program packages in the field-enable students to quickly and accurately solve problems for all techniques covered in the text; the volume of practice made possible by computer applications builds students' proficiency at solving numerical problems.
