The steady improvement in data sources and the growing number of University computers with large storage capacity has allowed something of a tide of multivariate methods to wash over geographers in recent years. It is surprising, therefore, that when techniques such as principal components analysis, multiple regression, multi-dimensional scaling, etc., are in frequent use in many departments, one technique of great potential use - covariance analysis - seem; to have been largely excluded from the geographer's portfolio.
