Parameters of Dispersions and Oblongity of Geosets
We indicated in Section 9.1 that summarizing the locations of the elements of a geoset through a center is an operation that has some similarity (and dissimilarities) to averaging the values X i of a variable X. Analogously, parameters of dispersion of geosets are somewhat similar to parameters of variability of these values X i of a variable X. We shall consider these operations, called for short, dispersion (of a geoset) and variability (of a one-dimensional variable).
