    HELP: Using Data on Different Spatial Scales for Econometric Regressions

    *Background: Using a Production Function in form of Autoregressive Regression Model for Regional Perfomance* Hi, This question is more of a theoretical nature. I have dataset that comprises all data on municipality level (n=290). However, due to data restrictions one variable, "self...

    Sample size estimation for multinomial autocorrelated data

    I'm trying to work out the minimum sample size needed to accurately characterise land cover data. The idea is to set out the a number of quadrats across the study site and identify what land cover type occurs in each. I have an idea as to how many categories there should be. So this is a...

    Longitude Latitude Time Series Plot

    Hi All! I have been looking to find a package that will allow to plot time series longitude/latitude in a map with density and connecting lines. For example, if t=1 for (lon1,lat1) then circle of diameter 1 is plotted at lon1, lat1. if t=3 for (lon2,lat2) then circle of diameter 3 is plotted at...

    Non-parametric repeated measures guidance needed

    What I am studdying is Aspergillosis (a disease) -it is caused by the terrestrial soil fungus called Aspergillus sydowii - of the sea fan Gorgonia ventalina. What I know so far: 1) My data is non-parametric....Residuals are not normally distributed and transformations do not help. 2)...

    Optimization problem - I need a flat floor!

    Okay, so my concrete floor is not level - there are high spots and there are low spots. My goal is to achieve <1/8th inch difference between any two spots within any 10 foot radius. What I have is elevation measurements across the entire floor, at every 6 inches along the Y and the X axis...

    Spatial Econometrics - Bias?

    Dear all, I seem to be lost with the following problem in spatial econometrics: Assume the true model is a spatial error model (SEM). It is well known that using OLS for estimation is inefficient but still unbiased. Now, when I compare my OLS vs. SEM estimates in R, say, they are quite...

    Correlation of Spatial Data

    Hi, I have 2 data sets X1 and X2. Both data sets contain various entries of geo spatial data (latitude and longitude). X1=[lat1,lon1; lat2,lon2; lat3,lon3; ....] X2 is just like X1 but different values. X1 and X2 are different in length. Now I need to find the spatial correlation...
