Jin-Kyu Jung co-authors “Qualitative GIS and Spatial Research”


IAS faculty member Jin-Kyu Jung co-authored a flagship chapter with Sarah Elwood, “Qualitative GIS and Spatial Research.” The chapter, which appears in SAGE Research Methods Foundations (SRMF), presents a critical review of qualitative GIS as a mixed methods framework for social and spatial research. It reflects an earlier wave of qualitative approaches in the 2000s implementing qualitative forms of representation or analysis into GIS-based research. Then, it also discusses ‘new’ approaches to qualitative GIS that are emerging through ongoing development in the form and function of spatial data and technologies as a form of multimodal knowledge production.
