About this book

Advanced Mapping of Environmental Data combines geostatistics and global mapping systems to present an up-to-the-minute study of environmental data. Featuring numerous case studies, Advanced Mapping of Environmental Data covers model dependent (geostatistics) and data driven (machine learning algorithms) analysis techniques such as risk mapping, conditional stochastic simulations, descriptions of spatial uncertainty and variability, artificial neural networks (ANN) for spatial data, Bayesian maximum entropy (BME), and more.

"It gives a good overview, is clearly written, is concise, and includes many references to papers published in the different areas."
- Zentralblatt MATH, 2011
