GEOSTATS: CSISS request for best practice examples
- Please forward to colleagues who you think may have an interest in the
The Center for Spatially Integrated Social Science has been established
by the National Science Foundation through its program of support for
research infrastructure in the social and behavioral sciences. CSISS is
located at UCSB and its main purposes are to recognize the key role
space plays in human society and to promote research that advances
understanding of spatial patterns and processes. Cartographic
visualization, geographic information systems (GIS), pattern
recognition, spatially sensitive statistical analytic tools, and
place-based search methodologies are the tools of the spatially
integrated social science (SISS) used to integrate knowledge across
disciplines and paradigms.
The center is now identifying best practice examples from each of the
Social Science disciplines and for different problem areas. I am writing
to you to ask you please to provide leads on articles or publications
that consider a spatial approach in your discipline. The papers may be
recent or past publications, authored by you or colleagues you know from
any institution for education or research. The authors of the selected
papers may be contacted to explore their inclusion in a book on Best
Practices in Spatially Integrated Social Sciences. In addition, the
proposed papers will be considered to generate user friendly, easily
understood primer examples for the centers website CSISS.org.
Thank you very much in advance for the references and leads you could
supply for the mentioned objective.
