A Framework for Research on Spatial Analysis Relevant to Geo-Statistical Informations Systems in Europe

Manfred Fischer and Stan Openshaw

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The paper emphasises the importance of a research programme focused on developing and making widely available GIS relevant spatial analysis technology. It outlines generic criteria able to discriminate between GIS-relevant and GIS-irrelevant spatial analysis tools and outlines a list of six researchable spatial analysis themes. It is argued that presently there is an opportunity to develop a EU based spatial analysis research programme and then install the technology in the World's GIS.
