    Understanding the nature and outcome of human and physical processes

Spatial Analysis

Spatial Analysis has a long tradition in Geography at McMaster University. Our focus is on understanding the nature and outcome of human and physical processes that take place over space with the use of quantitative methods, such as spatial statistics, and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Recent focus of the Spatial Analysis group has been in applications of transportation geography, urban land use, urban and regional air pollution, and the impact of environmental pollution on human health. Faculty members from the group participate in multi-disciplinary projects, both within and outside the School of Geography & Earth Sciences. Graduates with Spatial Analysis training pursue academic careers or find employment in the public and private sectors.
