GIS and evidence-based policy making

Author: Stephen Wise; Massimo Craglia
Publisher: Boca Raton, FL : CRC Press, 2008.
Series: Innovations in GIS.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
With the application of GIS methodologies to spatial data, researchers can now identify patterns of occurrence for many social problems including health-issues and crime. Furthermore, since this type of data also contains clues as to the underlying causes of social problems, it can be used to make well-educated and consequently, more effective policy decisions.
