Gregory, Ian N. and Ell, Paul S. (2006) Error sensitive historical GIS: Identifying areal interpolation errors in time series data. International Journal of Geographical Information Science, 20 (2). pp. 135-152. ISSN 1362-3087Full text not available from this repository.
Historical GIS has the potential to re-invigorate our use of statistics from historical censuses and related sources. In particular, areal interpolation can be used to create long-run time-series of spatially detailed data that will enable us to enhance significantly our understanding of geographical change over periods of a century or more. The difficulty with areal interpolation, however, is that the data that it generates are estimates which will inevitably contain some error. This paper describes a technique that allows the automated identification of possible errors at the level of the individual data values.
