Geography studies the processes which form and modify the physical landscape, to the dynamic and evolving relationships between humanity and the environment, and to the processes which shape the geographical diversity of human culture. This paper is structured into four sections: the areas of statistics that are of most relevance to geographical analysis and GIS; some important issues in the application of statistics to geographical data in a GIS context; a section that focuses on the use of statistical approaches to the problem of accuracy in spatial data, which is a key issue in the use of GIS technology; issues of implementation. -from Author
