Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This presentation presents an initial overview of a Qualitative GIS project being
developed by WISERD involving experts in GIS and spatial analysis collaborating with qualitative researchers, some of whom come from disciplinary backgrounds not associated with spatial literacy. The presentation will describe and give examples of the process of geo-tagging interview transcript records created as part of the qualitative GIS research programme and the issues that emerged in working with qualitative researchers with respect to disclosive mapping, the generation of spatial metrics and the interpretation of spatial patterns and metrics with respect to the context of the qualitative interviews.
