Statistics for spatial models

Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)


In this chapter we present the main statistical methods used to deal with the three types of data seen in earlier chapters. As well as general statistical methods that can be applied to various structures (maximum likelihood, minimum contrast, least squares, estimation of generalized linear models, the method of moments), we have specific techniques for each type of structure: variogram clouds in geostatistics, conditional pseudo-likelihood, Markov random field coding, nearest-neighbor distances, composite likelihood for PPs, etc. We will present each method in turn.
