Schabenberger Oliver,"Statistical Methods for Spatial Data Analysis"

This book provides an introduction to statistical methods for the analysis of spatial data. In a coherent manner, it presents statistical tools and approaches for analysis of three types of spatial data: geostatistical data, lattice data, and point patterns. …The book is intended as a text for a graduate-level course in spatial statistics. I believe that it would be a suitable text for a variety of reasons. First of all, the book provides comprehensive coverage of statistical methods for geostatistical data, lattice data, and point patterns. Not many books on spatial statistics have this feature. …The book has a nice balance of statistical theory, methodology, and applications, with an emphasis on statistical methods. It contains many concrete examples that illustrate both theory and methods. In illustrating the methods, real and interesting data examples are drawn from many disciplines such as agriculture, ecology, geology, epidemiology, and meteorology. …This is a wonderful book that systematically introduces readers to spatial statistics.
