This material can be used for distance education or self-study. I've built them up over the years, and when I get a fresh idea or want to work something out for myself, I improve them or write a new tutorials.
Topics include introduction to R, working with spatial data in R, visualization of spatial data, exploring spatial structure (trend surfaces, variograms, variogram maps), interpolation, optimal interpolation (kriging), block kriging, universal kriging, kriging with external drift, indicator kriging, sequential simulation of spatial fields, sampling optimization including simulated annealing, introduction to point-patterns, introduction to areal data, exchanging spatial data with other tools. The main computing tool was the
gstat package of the R environment; however many other packages are used (
MASS, spdep, spatstat, ...).
These materials are offered as-is, with no support. I hope you find them interesting and useful. Comments and corrections are always welcome. Materials last updated 06-June-2017
