A conceptual and historical basis for spatial analysis. Landscape Urban Plann., Basic geographic information systems and spatial analysis techniques are frequently used in order to gain environmental understanding as a basis for landscape by: 1.   A spatial analysis of variations in household direct energy consumption in the UK The near universal coverage of these government datasets allows an entirely new geography of energy to be mapped out, opening up new possibilities for targeting interventions for energy reduction at those who can make the greatest savings, whilst ensuring that Cited by: 4.

Our latest books, covering a wide range of key areas within Geography for students, instructors, researchers, and professors. Major advances in the use of geographic information systems have been made in both anthropology and archaeology. Yet there are few published discussions of these new applications and their use in solving complex problems. This book explores these techniques, showing how they have been successfully deployed to pursue research previously considered too difficult--or impossible--to undertake.

  The New Economic Geography (NEG) has made a major contribution to economic geography theory, but it puts forward an explanation that does not take account of the possibility that different processes may be operating at different spatial scales. It is a ‘one-size fits all’ by: Our experience of the spatial world is a unitary one; we perceive objects and layouts, we remember them and act on them, and we can even talk about them with ease. Despite this impression of seamlessness, spatial representations in human adults appear to be specialized in domain-dependent manner, engaging different properties and computational mechanisms for different functions.

Spatial analysis of legal systems- towards a geography of law? by Kim Economides Download PDF EPUB FB2

The concept of legal pluralism has been touted by many socio-legal scholars as a key concept in the analysis of law. Yet, after almost twenty years of such claims, there has been little progress. Critical research and analysis of the link between urban development, urban law and judicial decisions in the cities of Sub-Saharan Africa is limited.

Drawing on lessons from Maseru, Lesotho, this paper advances a critical analysis of the link between urban law, Cited by: 4. The paper examines the spatial distribution of overseas employment by large U.

The first four—economic, social, cultural, and political—reflect both the main areas of contemporary life and the social science disciplines with which geographers interact (i.e., economics, sociology, anthropology, and political science and international relations, respectively); the.

Spatial planning systems refer to the methods and approaches used by the public and private sector to influence the distribution of people and activities in spaces of various scales. Spatial planning can be defined as the coordination of practices and policies affecting spatial organization.

Spatial planning is synonymous with the practices of urban planning in the United States but at larger. For law enforcement, the decision is how many police officers or agents should be allocated to a given area. GIS has been used, from commercial to open source, to make decisions about when and where to send agents using data such as the region’s geography and time and methods of transporting given : Mark Altaweel.

The rights and duties attributed to private law are often not expressed explicitly in spatial terms. While some aspects like property rights may in fact be articulated in spatial terms, such aspects are often undermined by the abstract form of law. This means that the spatial relations have to be addressed by looking into law's spatial dimension.

This makes it especially difficult to provide an overall sense of how landscapes should be studied and researched.

In The Expanding Spaces of Law: A Timely Legal Geography (Braverman et al., ), the editors urge legal geographers to range more widely, and to seek out helpfully provocative interactions with less frequently encountered fields, such as architecture, the humanities and post humanities, physical geography, psychology and psychoanalysis and material and visual : Luke Bennett.

This book gives an overview of the wide range of spatial statistics available to analyse ecological data, and provides advice and guidance for graduate students and practising researchers who are either about to embark on spatial analysis in ecological studies or who have started but are unsure how to by: Spatial analysis can be portrayed as the scientific analysis of data, wherein the spatial position –whether absolute or relative, or both – of data records is explicitly accounted for.

It is fundamentally a modeling exercise that relates data entities together across the geographic space, as well as across multiple attribute spaces, and Cited by: 1.

Spatial Information Systems. New York: Oxford Univ. Press. E-mail Citation» This is an outstanding collection of applications of spatial analysis and spatial thinking in the social sciences colloquially referred to as the “Best Practices” book. The term "Geographic Information Systems" (GIS) has been added to MeSH ina step reflecting the importance and growing use of GIS in health and healthcare research and practices.

GIS have much more to offer than the obvious digital cartography (map) functions. From a community health perspective, GIS could potentially act as powerful evidence-based practice tools for early.

A Brief History. Medical GIS has its foundation in medical geography, which, can be found in the literature of several ancient civilizations, including China, Greece, and India, with perhaps the earliest coming from the work of the first physician, Hippocrates in the 5th Century BCE, who was among the first to observe the relationships between human health and the by: Although an interest in the regional geography of law can be traced as far back as the sixteenth-century writings of Jean Bodin and the eighteenth-century treatise of Montes-quieu, perhaps the first academic treatment was given by John Wigmore who, alerted to the geographic diversity of legal systems by a detailed study of Japanese law.

Second, I review arguments from outside the discipline of geography concerning the ways actors involved in state restructuring engage with and think about the law. Third, I argue for a historical-philosophical investigation into the way that law produces the pockmarked landscape of the global economy through both the extension of legal Cited by: While GIS is becoming more commonplace in local government, the application of GIS-based spatial analysis is less well developed, as GIS applications have tended to focus more on improving the efficiency of processing administrative tasks and on asset management rather than on “higher order” managerial by: Introduction.

Qualitative geographic information systems (qual-GIS) incorporates nonquantitative data into GIS, integrates qualitative data collection and analysis with quantitative spatial analysis facilitated by GIS, adopts epistemologies typically associated with qualitative research, or a combination of these.

Because environmental law generally exhibits a physical connection to place, this chapter observes that, on a macro scale, environmental law is concerned iwth how various resources that are obtained from the Earth are utilized.

Ecosystems — systems which entail nutrient regeneration and the processing of energy whose elements continuously evolve over time — as defined by ecology, are .Rather, classifying legal systems is simply based on whether, according to a book on foreign law (Reynolds and Flores, ), the main codes of these legal systems follow a particular model – and, if there are no such codes, the country is typically seen as part of the English legal by: Social geography is an interdisciplinary course that facilitates the understanding of the geography of inequality, injustice, and violence.

Since geography is a social science, it is important to have a course that focuses on the connection between the “spatial science” and its sister fields of the human and behavioral sciences.
