Remodelling Geography celebrates the coming of age of model building as a method of geographical enquiry. With contributions from leading scholars from across the discipline and outside it, the book demonstrates the continuing vitality, current problems and likely future directions of geographical modelling.
Developed from papers presented at a conference called to mark the twentieth anniversary of the publication of Models in Geography, the volume covers modelling in physical and human geography, the development of applied geography, the views of modelling and the question of research priorities. It contains a number of proposals for reorientating geographical enquiry - for 'remodelling' it in the light of the many changes that have taken place both inside and outside the discupline since Models in Geography was published.
