D'Arcy Thompson (1860-1948) was one of the most celebrated biologists of his day. He was a seminal figure in the development of the spatial analysis tradition within geography in the 1960s and 1970s. The re-discovery of the importance of geometry within the geographic tradition over the last half century owes much to Thompson who spent the whole of his academic life in the University of St Andrews and the University of Dundee
