This informative introduction to contemporary quantitative geography is unique in its presentation of both elementary material and more advanced concepts. Larry O'Brien integrates generalized material with models from the important fields of continuous and categorical data analysis which require specialized knowledge. He begins with basic material in the early chapters, and gradually guides the reader through introductory and finally advanced material on the frontiers of current research.
"Introducing Quantitative Geography" makes the teaching and learning of quantitative geography more logical and understandable. No previous knowledge of the field is required, and worked examples throughout the text guide the reader through the procedures.
