17 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com17 Spatial data exploration ESDA: Cluster hunting – GAM/K (steps) 1.Read data for the population at risk 2.Identify the MBR containing the data, identify starting circle radius, and degree of overlap 3.Generate a grid covering the MBR 4.For each grid-intersection generate a circle of radius r 5.Retrieve two counts for the population at risk and the variable of interest 6.Apply some significance test procedure 7.Keep the result if significant 8.Repeat Steps 5 to 7 until all circles have been processed 9.Increase circle radius by dr and return to Step 3 else go to Step Create a smoothed density surface of excess incidence for the significant circles 11.Map this surface and inspect the results

20 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com20 Spatial data exploration Point (event) based statistics Typically analysis of point-pair distances Points vs events Distance metrics: Euclidean, spherical, L p or network Weighted or unweighted events Events, NOT computed points (e.g. centroids) Classical statistical models vs Monte Carlo and other computational methods

21 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com21 Spatial data exploration Point (event) based statistics Basic Nearest neighbour (NN) model Input coordinates of all points Compute (symmetric) distances matrix D Sort the distances to identify the 1st, 2nd,...kth nearest values Compute the mean of the observed 1st, 2nd,...kth nearest values Compare this mean with the expected mean under Complete Spatial Randomness (CSR or Poisson) model

22 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com22 Spatial data exploration Point (event) based statistics – NN model

23 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com23 Spatial data exploration Point (event) based statistics – NN model Mean NN distance: Variance: NN Index (Ratio): Z-transform:

24 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com24 Spatial data exploration Point (event) based statistics Issues Are observations n discrete points? Sample size (esp. for k th order NN, k>1) Model requires density estimation, m Boundary definition problems (density and edge effects) – affects all methods NN reflexivity of point sets Limited use of frequency distribution Validity of Poisson model vs alternative models

25 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com25 Spatial data exploration Frequency distribution of nearest neighbour distances, i.e. The frequency of NN distances in distance bands, say 0-1km, 1-2kms, etc The cumulative frequency distribution is usually denoted G(d) = #(d i < r)/nwhere d i are the NN distances and n is the number of measurements, or F(d) = #(d i < r)/mwhere m is the number of random points used in sampling

26 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com26 Spatial data exploration Computing G(d) [computing F(d) is similar] Find all the NN distances Rank them and form the cumulative frequency distribution Compare to expected cumulative frequency distribution: Similar in concept to K-S test with quadrat model, but compute the critical values by simulation rather than table lookup

27 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com27 Spatial data exploration Point (event) based statistics – clustering (ESDA) Is the observed clustering due to natural background variation in the population from which the events arise? Over what spatial scales does clustering occur? Are clusters a reflection of regional variations in underlying variables? Are clusters associated with some feature of interest, such as a refinery, waste disposal site or nuclear plant? Are clusters simply spatial or are they spatio-temporal?

28 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com28 Spatial data exploration Point (event) based statistics – clustering k th order NN analysis Cumulative distance frequency distribution, G(r) Ripley K (or L) function – single or dual pattern PCP Hot spot and cluster analysis methods

29 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com29 Spatial data exploration Point (event) based statistics – Ripley K or L Construct a circle, radius d, around each point (event), i Count the number of other events, labelled j, that fall inside this circle Repeat these first two stages for all points i, and then sum the results Increment d by a small fixed amount Repeat the computation, giving values of K(d) for a set of distances, d Adjust to provide normalised measure L:

31 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com31 Spatial data exploration Point (event) based statistics – comments CSR vs PCP vs other models Data: location, time, attributes, error, duplicates Duplicates: deliberate rounding, data resolution, genuine duplicate locations, agreed surrogate locations, deliberate data modification Multi-approach analysis is beneficial Methods: choice of methods and parameters Other factors: borders, areas, metrics, background variation, temporal variation, non-spatial factors Rare events and small samples Process-pattern vs cause-effect ESDA in most instances

32 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com32 Spatial data exploration Hot spot and cluster analysis – questions where are the main (most intensive) clusters located? are clusters distinct or do they merge into one another? are clusters associated with some known background variable? is there a common size to clusters or are they variable in size? do clusters themselves cluster into higher order groupings? if comparable data are mapped over time, do the clusters remain stable or do they move and/or disappear?

33 3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com33 Spatial data exploration Hot spot (and cool-spot) analysis Visual inspection of mapped patterns Scale issues Proximal and duplicate points Point representation (size) Background variation/controls (risk adjustment) Weighted or unweighted Hierarchical or non-hierarchical Kernel & K-means methods
