Spatial Statistics

Happy Wednesday folks. Take a look at our newest tutorial, Spatial Statistics, put together by Chris Gavin of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

He managed to articulate some pretty confusing statistical concepts into simple descriptions and examples. The tutorials look at the following spatial analysis techniques.

  • Standard Distance
  • Anselin Local Moran’s I
  • Hot Spot Analysis
  • Average Nearest Neighbor
  • Spatial Autocorrelation

All of these come with practice data, which you can get from the ‘sample data’ link on the page linked above. It will ask for a password – give it ‘gisc’ and that should grant you access to the internal FTP for a zip download with the geodatabase you’ll need for all five of the processes.

Here’s a big thanks to Chris for his work and knowledge.
