Qualitative GIS is an emerging, mixed-method and interdisciplinary research approach that is attracting interest across a range of disciplines. The early literature has highlighted the innovative nature of the Qualitative GIS approach to combining ‘qualitative’ and ‘quantitative’ spatial data and encouraging multiple epistemological approaches to spatial research. This includes an engagement with the social processes that help create places and the history of these processes as well as people’s perceptions of these processes and, consequently, of the places they inhabit.
