This book has become the gold standard for teaching statistical methods to geographers. With a friendly and accessible manner, the author covers introductory statistics while revealing the quirkiness of spatial data. It is suitable for a one-year undergraduate class in geography, and there is no better reference for students transitioning to graduate studies. While always including rich examples form human geography, this new edition includes more examples from physical geography that will appeal to a wider audience.
Absolutely fabulous resource that connects the utility of statistics for addressing geographic problems and issues. I have long used this text in teaching and research, beginning with the first edition in 2001. The continued revision and updating make this the premier text for introductory quantitative geographical inquiry.
