Collecting Spatial Data. Optimum Design of Experiments for Random Fields (Contributions to Statistics)
Kurzbeschreibung The book is concerned with the statistical theory for locating spatial sensors. It bridges the gap between spatial statistics and optimum design theory. After introductions to those two fields the topics of exploratory designs and designs for spatial trend and variogram estimation are treated. A new methodology, socalled approximate information matrices, are employed to cope with the problem of correlated observations. A great number of relevant references are collected and put into a common perspective. The theoretical investigations are accompanied by a practical example, the redesign of an UpperAustrian air pollution monitoring network. The reader will find respective theory and recommendations on how to efficiently plan a specific purpose spatial monitoring network.
