International Journal of Applied Geospatial Research (IJAGR) Volume 7, Issue 1

Book Description

The International Journal of Applied Geospatial Research (IJAGR) is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal specializing in studies from applied geography that interface with geographic information science and technology. Including both regular and special themed issues, this journal presents policy analysts, geospatial practitioners, and academicians with high-quality articles exemplifying various application domains within applied geospatial research. IJAGR is interested in research highlighting various GIS&T application domains that span the social and physical sciences. The limiting factor is less topical, but more whether such studies incorporate geospatial technologies (geospatial statistics, global positioning systems, geographic information systems, remote sensing, etc.) to answer practical, utilitarian, and applied geographic questions.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • A Study of Cross-Market Branch Banking in Illinois: A Multiple Regression Quadratic Assignment Procedure Approach
  • Community-Engaged GIS for Urban Food Justice Research
  • Optimizing School Bus Stop Placement in Howard County, Maryland: A GIS-Based Heuristic Approach
  • Coastal Impervious Cover and Watershed Scale: Implications for Environmental Management, New Hanover County, North Carolina
  • Developing a Compendium of Ideas on Using the Retrospective Approach to Mine for GIS Nuggets: Initial Considerations
