Introduction: Geospatial Analysis

  • Yuji Murayama
Chapter

Abstract

As mentioned in the preface, most of the contributors to this book are faculty members, graduates, or PhD candidates at the Division of Spatial Information Science of the University of Tsukuba. Inevitably, our knowledge of advanced geospatial analysis is limited, and we are not able to draw a complete picture of this comprehensive field. Therefore, the contents are rather selective and topic-oriented.

Keywords
