DURAN-GIL, Carlos Alberto. Spatial analysis of the conditions of social, economic, physical and environmental vulnerability in the Colombian territory. Perspectiva Geográfica [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.1, pp.11-32. ISSN 0123-3769.

This article describes the development of a methodology generated from the spatial analysis that allows to determine, quantify and categorize vulnerability in its social, economic, physical and environmental dimensions, and characterize the sum of these as the total vulnerability. Based on official information disaggregated at the municipal level, a selection of incident factors in each vulnerability dimension is made, which are subject to an exploratory spatial analysis to determine particular behaviors of associative type. These factors, when added in an equal-weighted way through normalized values, allow defining vulnerability indexes, whose results are visualized through thematic cartographic representation on the Colombian space, reflecting different trends and patterns, both high and low vulnerability. This approach allows the understanding of vulnerability as a multi-causal and spatial connotation phenomenon, which is a relevant issue for the focused assessment of its impact and appropriate decision making.

Palabras clave : spatial analysis; exploratory analysis of spatial data; spatial autocorrelation; patterns; vulnerability.
