Hi just to mention a new overview on quantitative geography has now been published to add to this list (another on deserts will follow shortly too).  Colleagues might enjoy the quote from a professor of statistics about geographers use of Chi-squared ...!

See this link
http://www.rgs.org/NR/rdonlyres/A69E0975-5BED-490E-A384-C2EC1406220A/0/AShortIntroductiontoQuantitativeGeography.pdf


The quants overview is part of our new Data Skills in Geography project which will support GCSE and A Level through new resources and CPD.  For more info on the project do drop a line to my colleague Simon Pinfield s.pinfield@rgs.org

Best wishes
