About this item
Statistical methods play an increasingly important role in geography, and a good working knowledge is required by all undergraduate students. Many students struggle to come to grips with the methods, and this book is designed as a practical guide to help them to analyse and interpret data. It is different than many textbooks in this market because it focuses on nonparametric techniques, as these are the most appropriate methods for geographic data. Each method is described in a consistent format, to help with understanding, with lots of real data examples for illustration. It does not adopt one particular software package, but gives guidance on various options and when best to employ them.
