Interfacing Geostatistics and GIS
" Interfacing Geostatistics and GIS" is a comprehensive book that explores the integration of geostatistical analysis and GIS technology. The book is written by two leading experts in the field, Pierre Goovaerts and Bradley A. Shellito, and provides a thorough understanding of how to apply geostatistics to spatial data analysis using GIS.
The book begins with an introduction to the geostatistical analysis and GIS technology and then delves into the various techniques used to interface these two approaches. The authors explain how to import data into GIS software, geocode it, and then perform geostatistical analysis. They also provide detailed descriptions of spatial interpolation methods and spatial data analysis techniques.
Throughout the book, the authors provide numerous case studies and examples of how to use geostatistics and GIS technology to analyze spatial data. They cover topics such as soil contamination, groundwater modeling, air pollution modeling, and the mapping of natural resources.
The book is intended for anyone who wants to understand how to use geostatistics and GIS technology together. It is particularly useful for students, researchers, and professionals in fields such as environmental science, geology, geography, and spatial data analysis. Overall, "Interfacing Geostatistics and GIS" is a valuable resource for anyone interested in analyzing spatial data using geostatistical techniques and GIS technology.
