About this book

The guidance and special techniques provided in this handbook will allow you to understand and use complex spatial statistical techniques. You will learn how to apply proper spatial analysis techniques and why they are generally different from conventional statistical analyses. Clear and concise information on weighting, aggregation effects, sampling, spatial statistics and GIS, and visualization of spatial dependence is provided. Discussions on specific applications using actual data sets fill obvious gaps in the literature, and coverage of critical research frontiers allows readers to explore current areas of active research.
