"Decision making often takes place at varying administrative levels and performing multiscalar analyses can provide additional levels of insight. The model is generalizable across all geographies, scales, and temporal ranges and is equipped to automatically generate classifications for any geographical boundary."—Peter et al. 2018

CARTOGRAPHY: The modifiable areal unit problem is a tough one to crack. This map features vegetation productivity with ranges of values binned relative to the geography under observation. Notice that Malawi is largely homogenous at the continental level, but at local scales heterogeneity emerges.
