Geographers have long been interested in the spatial distribution of data both in terms of visualization (maps) and statistical analysis (point pattern analysis, spatial autocorrelation, kriging etc) but have essentially ignored the spatial distribution of processes. This seminar attempts to correct this bias by discussing the Geography of Processes through issues such as local modeling, scale, the role and measurement of locational context, and the implications of spatially varying processes for the transferability of models.
