About this book

Presents the first comprehensive guide to the analysis of spatial data. Each chapter covers a particular data format and the associated class of problems, introducing theory, giving computational suggestions, and providing examples. Methods are illustrated by computer-drawn figures. Serves as an introduction to this rapidly growing research area for mathematicians and statisticians, and as a reference to new computer methods for research workers in ecology, geology, archeology, and the earth sciences.
