This book on DVD simplifies the application of spatial statistics in GIS using case study data. The author explains the relationship between uncertainty in the data and uncertainty in the model, discusses sources of uncertainty and error, examines commonly used statistical distributions, and introduces methods for sensitivity and uncertainty analysis. The book also looks at the differences between continuous, regional, and discrete data and at the advantages and disadvantages of deterministic and statistical models.
