This thesis shows how improvements can be made to two dimensional gamma - ray source analysis by using a probabilistic approach to describe the possible source location and likelihood of a candidate gamma-ray event. The mapping algorithm developed assesses the significance of source detection, and background subtraction is implemented both by a modified standard approach and by the development of a multivariate kernel analysis.
