Spatial Measures of Segregation and Gis1

Spatial Measures of Segregation and Gis1 Traditional segregation measures have limitations in discerning different patterns of population distributions. Spatial measures of segregation have been introduced, but have not been widely adopted partly because of the difficulties in using them. A recent effort is to implement several spatial segregation measures as additional GIS tools in a popular desktop GIS package so that researchers and practitioners not savvy in GIS can use these tools to compute spatial segregation indices. This paper provides a concise review of these measures and elaborates the new tools developed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Urban Geography Taylor & Francis

Abstract

Traditional segregation measures have limitations in discerning different patterns of population distributions. Spatial measures of segregation have been introduced, but have not been widely adopted partly because of the difficulties in using them. A recent effort is to implement several spatial segregation measures as additional GIS tools in a popular desktop GIS package so that researchers and practitioners not savvy in GIS can use these tools to compute spatial segregation indices. This paper provides a concise review of these measures and elaborates the new tools developed.
