Abstract

The Geo-Refer project involves the creation and deployment of a digital library of learning resources targeted at social scientists whose primary discipline is not geography, but whose research requires them to use and link geographically referenced data. Geographical location provides a key mechanism for linkage between sources, for example between individual-level survey responses or health records and existing secondary data such as that provided by the census of population. Further examples include sets of data for incompatible areal units and primary data collection using the global positioning system.
