Most widely held works by Gerard Rushton
Spatial choice and spatial behavior : geographic essays on the analysis of preferences and perceptions by Reginald G Golledge( Book )
8 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 441 libraries worldwide
Sharing geographic information ( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 275 libraries worldwide
Developments in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are changing land-use decision making in profound ways. Access to data on land and its uses is essential to a wide range of planning functions, both public and private. But data collection and maintenance are difficult and expensive. The potential for sharing information within and among organizations makes GIS technology accessible to planners, analysts, and policymakers. This volume consists primarily of papers prepared for a specialist meeting on "Institutions Sharing Geographic Information" hosted by the National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis in February 1992. Authors include leading academics in organization theory, management information systems, and GIS as well as practitioners from federal, state, regional, and local governments, GIS software developers, consultants, and spatial data suppliers
Spatial analysis and location-allocation models ( Book )
7 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 256 libraries worldwide
Geocoding health data : the use of geographic codes in cancer prevention and control, research, and practice by Gerard Rushton( Book )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 141 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 )
6 editions published between 1963 and 1982 in English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
Working bibliography on scaling methods appropriate for analysis of space preferences by Gordon O Ewing( Book )
4 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)

Quantitative geography: achievements and prospects; final report by University of Iowa( Book )
4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
The research goals and methodological approach of quantitative geography in its formative period (1955-1965) are described and some principles concerning the logic of scientific discovery which led to further adoption and modification of quantitative approaches in the discipline are discussed. Substantive achievements of quantification are described in relation to the analysis of spatial structure; mathematical regionalization; development of location theory from behavioral foundations; measurement problems in the analysis of spatial behavior; the development of spatial prediction models and in relation to quantitative spatial geomorphology. Forecasts of future developments in the area of quantitative geography are made and the adaptability of substantive findings for incorporation in an automated environment of data analysis are discussed
