By Tonny J. Oyana,Florence Margai

An introductory textual content for the following new release of geospatial analysts and information scientists, Spatial research: statistics, Visualization, and Computational tools focuses at the basics of spatial research utilizing conventional, modern, and computational equipment. Outlining either non-spatial and spatial statistical ideas, the authors current functional purposes of geospatial information instruments, thoughts, and methods in geographic reviews. they provide a problem-based studying (PBL) method of spatial analysis—containing hands-on problem-sets that may be labored out in MS Excel or ArcGIS—as good as specific illustrations and diverse case reports.

The ebook permits readers to:

  • Identify varieties and represent non-spatial and spatial data

  • Demonstrate their competence to discover, visualize, summarize, study, optimize, and obviously current statistical information and results

  • Construct testable hypotheses that require inferential statistical analysis

  • Process spatial info, extract explanatory variables, behavior statistical checks, and clarify results

  • Understand and interpret spatial info summaries and statistical tests

Spatial research: facts, Visualization, and Computational Methods comprises conventional statistical equipment, spatial records, visualization, and computational equipment and algorithms to supply a concept-based problem-solving studying method of getting to know functional spatial research. subject matters lined comprise: spatial descriptive equipment, speculation checking out, spatial regression, scorching spot research, geostatistics, spatial modeling, and information science.
