Esri Press has released Spatial Statistical Data Analysis for GIS Users. The volume, published on DVD, focuses on explaining the applications of statistical analysis in GIS. From the press release: “This book provides a fundamental guide to understanding and applying the three tasks of geostatistical modeling,” said author Konstantin Krivoruchko, whose career has focused on developing statistical software and teaching spatial statistics. “Those tasks include finding out how much data variation exists, making sure that the model describes the data as closely as possible and is not adding too much additional error, and knowing how much error is too much.”
NASA and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) have signed an agreement to share their satellite data and geospatial technologies with international partners to assist with disaster response. Nextgov reports on the agreement: NASA and USAID sign geospatial accord.
