Observations refer to properties or qualities at particular locations in space and moments in time. In many cases, locations and/or times are not taken into account explicitly, because they are not relevant. In other cases, they are. Most of this book addresses the case where spatial location matters, and temporal variation is not present or ignored. Texts on time series analysis mostly do the reverse. This chapter will address first steps in handling spatio-temporal data, and analysing them.
