Statistical Geoinformatics for Human Environment Interface Hardback
Part of the Chapman & Hall/CRC Applied Environmental Statistics series
Statistical Geoinformatics for Human Environment Interface presents two paradigms for studying both space and interface with regard to human/environment: localization and multiple indicators.
The first approach localizes thematic targets by treating space as a pattern of vicinities, with the pattern being a square grid and the placement of vicinities centrically referenced.
The second approach explores human/environment interface as an abstraction through indicators, neutralizing the common conundrum of how to reconcile disparate spatial structures such as points, lines, and polygons.
These paired paradigms enable:The capacity to cope with complexity Systematic surveillanceVisualization and communication Preliminary prioritizationCoupling of GIS and statistical softwareAvenues for automationIllustrating the interdisciplinary nature of geoinformatics, this book offers a novel approach to the spatial analysis of human influences and environmental resources.
It includes practical strategies for statistical and spatial analysis.
