Measures of dissimilarity between observations
Spatial statistics is a branch of statistics that studies methods to make inference based on data observed over spatial regions. In typical applications these regions are either 2- or 3-dimensional. The methodology is mostly aimed at accounting and modeling aspects of the so-called First Law of Geography: attributes from locations that are closer together are more closely related...
