Spatial Relationships Between Two Georeferenced Variables: with applications in R

This book is about how to assess the correlation between two spatial processes. The book describes several different scenarios in which the correlation between two or more sequences is computed. This includes, for instance, useful material for people interested in spatial statistics, time series and image analysis.

The analysis and code shown in the book use the R software and most of the methods are implemented by the contributed packages CompRandFld and SpatialPack .

This book is an ongoing project sponsored by Springer, which will be available in 2018.
