Esri Press Releases “Spatial Statistical Data Analysis for GIS Users”

The long-anticipated Spatial Statistical Data Analysis for GIS Users is now available from Esri Press.

The book presents a practical introduction and guide to spatial statistics for researchers, statisticians, academics, and college students who want to expand their knowledge and skills in geographic information system (GIS) technology to new areas of analysis. More than 1,000 full-color illustrations are included, along with lessons and sample data to help organize courses and lectures.

“This book provides a fundamental guide to understanding and applying the three tasks of geostatistical modeling,” said author Konstantin Krivoruchko, whose career has focused on developing statistical software and teaching spatial statistics. “Those tasks include finding out how much data variation exists, making sure that the model describes the data as closely as possible and is not adding too much additional error, and knowing how much error is too much.”

Published in DVD-ROM format, the book provides a comprehensive overview of spatial statistical and geostatistical data analysis that

● Explains basic concepts of statistical models that are common in current research

● Cites difficulties in applying these models to the data

● Sketches solutions to typical problems

● Offers examples of data analysis and computer codes

● Provides exercises for practicing spatial data analysis
