Geographically Weighted Models:

Researchers in the NCG have played a key role in the development of the spatial data analysis technique of geographically weighted regression (GWR) and continue to expand the methodology to include a wider range of geographically weighted tools.  The original papers introducing the method,  and the book relating to the method have had around 3,000 citations,  and the technique has been employed in several fields of study including house price analysis,  health geography,  climate analysis,  crime pattern analysis and the study of voting patterns.  For further information on Geographically Weighted Models please visit
