Spatial statistics

Spatial statistics – meaning, description and approach

Spatial statistics is a statistical sub-branch. It is handling the problems with geographic distributions of the data. In addition this includes point patterns, aggregation on regional and lattice level and measurements on specific sites on the surface.


We start the analysis with definition of what information we need. The most convenient way is to frame a question. After that we need to understand our data – what type of data we have, what are the appropriate methods. The next step is to choose a method and process the data. In the end we look at the results and answer the question.
