Statistical Methods for Spatial Data Analysis is a comprehensive treatment of statistical theory and methods for spatial data analysis, employing a model-based and frequentist approach that emphasizes the spatial domain. The authors deliver an outstanding treatment of semivariogram estimation and modeling, spatial analysis in the spectral domain, and spatial regression, covering linear models with uncorrelated errors, linear models with spatially-correlated errors and generalized linear mixed models for spatial data and succinctly discussing Bayesian hierarchical models. The book concludes with a review of simulation, non-stationary covariance, and spatio-temporal processes.
