Spatial data analysis : models, methods and techniques by Manfred M Fischer( )

21 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The availability of spatial databases and widespread use of geographic information systems has stimulated increasing interest in the analysis and modelling of spatial data. Spatial data analysis focuses on detecting patterns, and on exploring and modelling relationships between them in order to understand the processes responsible for their emergence. In this way, the role of space is emphasised, and our understanding of the working and representation of space, spatial patterns, and processes is enhanced. In applied research, the recognition of the spatial dimension often yields different and more meaningful results and helps to avoid erroneous conclusions. This book aims to provide an introduction into spatial data analysis to graduates interested in applied statistical research. The text has been structured from a data-driven rather than a theory-based perspective, and focuses on those models, methods and techniques which are both accessible and of practical use for graduate students. Exploratory techniques as well as more formal model-based approaches are presented, and both area data and origin-destination flow data are considered

Innovation, networks, and knowledge spillovers : selected essays by Manfred M Fischer( )

19 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection brings together Manfred M. Fischer`s work in the areas of innovation and technological change, innovation and network activities, knowledge creation and spillovers. The volume is in three parts. The first part demonstrates that the processes of innovation and technological change are spatially differentiated, both regionally within countries and internationally between countries. The second part broadens, both conceptually and empirically, our understanding of the innovation process and the process of network formation, by examining the increasing importance of knowledge creation and diffusion in the new economy and how this is changing the nature of firms in crucial ways. Particular focus is laid on identifying the growing pressures for firms to develop more inter- and intrafirm networks and on providing lucid illustrations of these different kinds of networks. The third part discusses key issues related to the systems of innovation approach as a conceptual framework for regional innovation analysis and directs attention to enlightening conceptual and empirical work on the issue how knowledge spills over locally. This collection will be essential reading for scholars and students interested in regional science, economic geography and regional economics, economics of technological change and innovation, industrial organisation, innovation studies and economic development. Manfred M. Fischer is Professor in Economic Geography and GIScience at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, Austria
Spatial analytical perspectives on GIS by Manfred M Fischer( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2019 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ability to manipulate spatial data in different forms and to extract additional meaning from them is at the heart of GIS, yet genuine spatial analysis tools are rarely incorporated into commercial software, thus seriously limiting their usefulness. There is widespread agreement in the GIS research community that the future success of GIS technology will depend to a large extent on its incorporation of more powerful analytical and modelling functions, and this raises problems of what functions to include, how to include them, and how to structure GIS data to take best advantage of them." "Spatial Analytical Perspectives on GIS is the fourth in the GISDATA series, and it has arisen from the view that there is an urgent need to tackle these issues. Its breadth of cover, involving concepts and applications from both the environmental and socio-economic sciences, reflects the many-faceted nature of spatial analysis in GIS. The book is structured in three parts. The first part deals with spatial data analysis in GIS environments which are data rich and are primarily visual. The second focuses on data integration issues ranging from integration through overlay analysis to the integration of spatial models into GIS. Finally, the third part attempts to shed light on how current work is bringing dynamics into GIS."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Spatial choices and processes by Manfred M Fischer( Book )

21 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spatial decisions and processes are fundamental to the understanding of spatial structure. In the earlier stages of spatial analysis proposed explanations were typically on the aggregate, phenomenological level. Now a new field has evolved and matured which calls for a deeper understanding of spatial structure with a particular emphasis on spatial decisions and processes. The present volume serves as a guide and as an anthology by discussing a wide variety of new modelling approaches, techniques and issues related to spatial decision and processes and drawing these seemingly disparate
Geographic information systems, spatial modelling, and policy evaluation by Manfred M Fischer( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and German and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) provide an enhanced environment for spatial data processing. The ability of geographic information systems to handle and analyse spatially referenced data may be seen as a major characteristic which distinguishes GIS from information systems developed to serve the needs of business data processing as well as from CAD systems or other systems whose primary objective is map production. This book, which contains contributions from a wide-ranging group of international scholars, demonstrates the progress which has been achieved so far at the interface of GIS technology and spatial analysis and planning. The various contributions bring together theoretical and conceptual, technical and applied issues. Topics covered include the design and use of GIS and spatial models, AI tools for spatial modelling in GIS, spatial statistical analysis and GIS, GIS and dynamic modelling, GIS in urban planning and policy making, information systems for policy evaluation, and spatial decision support systems
