"For geographic analysts, modelers, software engineers, and GIS professionals, GIS, Spatial Analysis, and Modeling presents applied, software-centric essays about the tools and methods currently available to do modeling and spatial analysis within a GIS framework." "Written by noted experts who have experience modeling within, and linking to, GIS software, this book poses a series of questions where geography is the pivotal issue: What are the most useful approaches for simulating geographic processes? What software is available to model the dynamics of space and time? How have spatial analysis and modeling been applied to substantive, real-world problems?" "With discussions of agent-based modeling, dynamic feedback and simulation modeling, links between models and GIS software, with applications based on environmental, atmospheric, hydrological, urban, social, health, and economic models, this book describes the state-of-the-art understanding in this dynamic field.
