Multidimensional scaling: review and geographical applications by Reginald G Golledge( Book )
8 editions published in 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 149 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this monograph is to show that sufficient achievements in scaling applications have been made to justify serious study of scaling methodologies, particularly multidimensional scaling (mds) as a tool for geographers. To be useful research, it was felt that the common methodological and technical problems that specialized researchers share with other scholars should be indicated by review of the applications, and that an adequate statement on the mathematics and heuristics of scaling algorithms is necessary. As a review of applications, subroutines in scaling programs are "dissected" in order to understand how certain critical parameters are defined and used. This research work is presented in three parts relating to 1) basic fundamentals of scaling, data requirements, and algorithm constructions and problems; 2) two step-by-step examples of the non-metric section of a multidimensional scaling algorithm; and 3) a review of geographical applications of the approach in a variety of problem areas. The position of this paper is that mds provides a useful and constructive methodology for examining the problems of preference and choice for researchers in geography. In conclusion, some problems of using mds are mentioned and its potential uses in geography given. (Author/ND)
Geocoding health data : the use of geographic codes in cancer prevention and control, research, and practice by Gerard Rushton( Book )
16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 136 libraries worldwide
With recent disease outbreaks and concerns about bioterrorism, interest in the application of GIS to individual level data has grown. "Geocoding Health Data" presents a state-of-the-art discussion on current technical and administrative developments in geographic information science that will affect the future practice of geocoding. This book examines how geocoded residential addresses can be used to examine the spatial patterns of cancer incidence, staging, survival, and mortality. It also explores how privacy and confidentiality issues can be addressed by focusing on disclosure limitation methods while simultaneously enabling the use of more accurate spatial data on disease distributions
Growth and decline of Iowa villages : a pilot study by Neil Elliot Salisbury( Book )
4 editions published between 1963 and 1982 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
Working bibliography on scaling methods appropriate for analysis of space preferences by Gordon O Ewing( Book )
3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
This bibliography draws together from a number of disciplines literature dealing with problems of scaling and measuring stimuli. Substantive areas of application are behavioral geography, marketing, mathematical psychology, urban planning, consumer research, and subjective appraisals of objects. Citations are organized into four separate sections. Section 1 deals with the theory of measurement, including the philosophical basis of measurement theory and various choice theories. Section 2 deals with revealed preference patterns and multidimensional scaling. Section 3 deals with multidimensional scaling techniques and algorithms; whenever possible, information about the availability of computer programs is included. Section 4 deals with geographic studies of space preferences. Within each section, entries are listed alphabetically by author's name. (Author/JG)
