NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center has released a video today showing visually the ice loss in the Arctic Sea from 1979-2007. The video is pretty impressive showing the degree of loss over the last 30 years or so. The video is linked on the right hand side along with some flat photo images.
I am not sure how I missed something like this, but Drs de Smith, Goodchild, and Longley, released a book entitled Geospatial Analysis – a comprehensive guide. Now in its second edition (2006, 2007), the important thing about the book, beyond the content and the reputation of the authors, is that while you can get a bound version or PDF for a charge, there is an amazing amount of information available on the website…aka the book. This is a great resource for those who need to look up something quickly or for those who are new to geospatial analysis methods and tools and need a strong introduction. The sections of the book are:
While this are the broad sections, the book gets into some great details like Trend analysis of continuous data (under ESDA) and Verification and calibration of agent-based models (under Geosimulation). I will definitely be talking about this in Episode 120 this weekend, and I will try to get a review of the web version up in the next couple of weeks.
