To boldly go where no map has gone before
From Joseph Berry: Several previous "Beyond Mapping" columns described a mathematical framework for quantitative analysis of mapped data. Recall that spatial analysis operations investigate the "contextual" relationships within and among maps, such as variable-width buffers that account for intervening conditions. Spatial statistics operations, however, examine the "numerical" relationships to uncover inherent geographic patterns in data.
