All aspects of the incorporation of computing in geography are covered; from the simplistic (word processing) to the technologically advanced (remote sensing and computer cartography). The journey begins with data collection both mechanical methods (data loggers) and manual methods (keyboard entry) are discussed as well as problems involved in classifying geographical data. Data management is explored and methods of statistical analysis, including such statistical packages as MINITAB and SNAP. Specialised mapping packages such as GIMMS are discussed in detail. Image analysis techniques are described as are various applications of remote sensing in geography. -M.Blakemore
