Abstract

In the 1960s geography in the United States witnessed some dramatic changes that have been referred to as the quantitative revolution and the spatial analysis movement. These changes are interpreted as the main part of an effort to establish geography's membership in the social sciences academy. The role of certain key individuals in directing this effort are highlighted and some contrasts are drawn between these developments in the United States, in Australia and in New Zealand
