## Statistics for Spatial DataStatistics for Spatial Data is concerned with analyzing spatial data through statistical models. The book unifies many diverse areas by using consistent notation, and delineates clearly the three strongest growth areas - geostatistical data, lattice data and point patterns. It corrects mistakes which have not previously been subject to close scrutiny from statisticians, and gives new results at the frontiers of the subject. |
