Book DescriptionSpatial data is data about the world where we record both the attribute of interest, and its location on the earth's surface. We need to analyse such data for many reasons. Are there geographic clusters of disease cases, or hotspots of crime? Can we match the geography of air quality to where people hospitalised for respiratory complaints actually live? This first comprehensive overview of the subject shows how such questions can be tackled. It will interest students and researchers in geography, economics, social science, the environmental sciences and statistics.
This book is one of my ever read in the field of Spatial data Analysis. I recommend it for any young researcher, who is trying to understand the matter of spatial Data Analysis.
