Spatial Statistics will soon start in Avignon, France, from the 9-12 June 2015 under the theme 'Emerging Patterns'.
Spatial statistics is a rapidly developing field involving the quantitative analysis of spatial data and the statistical modelling of spatial variability and uncertainty.
Applications of spatial statistics are for a broad range of environmental disciplines such as agriculture, geology, soil science, hydrology, ecology, oceanography, forestry, meteorology and climatology, but also for socio-economic disciplines such as human geography, spatial econometrics, epidemiology and spatial planning. The availability of GIS systems and affordable geospatial databases has fuelled the interest in the statistical analysis of geographic data.
The theme, Emerging Patterns in Spatial Statistics will highlight trends on various topics such as ‘new sources of spatial data’, ‘predictive modelling’, ‘disease mapping’, ‘hazards, disasters and risks’, ‘climate change’ and ‘tipping points’.
