Abstract : The use of measures of contiguity as one aspect of the geographic study of an area partitioned into regions is discussed, and two typical problems illustrate application of these methods. This report emphasizes contiguity measures for two and k color maps and is largely drawn from studies published in the late 1940's on the distribution of joins on two and k color lattices. A table useful for testing the hypothesis of randomness on two color maps is included; the double binomial distribution is tabulated with 5 DP for p = .01(.01).50, r = 1(1)10 and x = 0(1)r. (Author)
