Lowest used price: $18.79
List price: $34.95
Author: Andy Mitchell
Brand: Brand: ESRI Press

As the tools available through commercial GIS software have grown in sophistication, a need has emerged to instruct users on the best practices of true GIS analysis. In this sequel to the bestselling The ESRI Guide to GIS Analysis, author Andy Mitchell delves into the more advanced realm of spatial measurements and statistics. The premise of The ESRI Guide to GIS Analysis, Volume 2, targets GIS technology as having been well used as a display and visualization medium but not so widely used as an implement for real analysis. Covering topics that range from identifying patterns and clusters, to analyzing geographic relationships, this book is a valuable resource for GIS users performing complex analysis.

Spatial Point Patterns: Methodology and Applications with R (Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics)

Spatial Point Patterns: Methodology and Applications with R (Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics) Lowest new price: $70.19
Lowest used price: $72.56
List price: $99.95
Author: Adrian Baddeley
Brand: Chapman and Hall CRC

Modern Statistical Methodology and Software for Analyzing Spatial Point Patterns

Spatial Point Patterns: Methodology and Applications with R shows scientific researchers and applied statisticians from a wide range of fields how to analyze their spatial point pattern data. Making the techniques accessible to non-mathematicians, the authors draw on their 25 years of software development experiences, methodological research, and broad scientific collaborations to deliver a book that clearly and succinctly explains concepts and addresses real scientific questions.

Practical Advice on Data Analysis and Guidance on the Validity and Applicability of Methods

The first part of the book gives an introduction to R software, advice about collecting data, information about handling and manipulating data, and an accessible introduction to the basic concepts of point processes. The second part presents tools for exploratory data analysis, including non-parametric estimation of intensity, correlation, and spacing properties. The third part discusses model-fitting and statistical inference for point patterns. The final part describes point patterns with additional "structure," such as complicated marks, space-time observations, three- and higher-dimensional spaces, replicated observations, and point patterns constrained to a network of lines.

Easily Analyze Your Own Data

Throughout the book, the authors use their spatstat package, which is free, open-source code written in the R language. This package provides a wide range of capabilities for spatial point pattern data, from basic data handling to advanced analytic tools. The book focuses on practical needs from the user’s perspective, offering answers to the most frequently asked questions in each chapter.

Into the Heart of Borneo

Into the Heart of Borneo Lowest new price: $6.91
Lowest used price: $1.02
List price: $15.00
Author: Redmond O'Hanlon

The story of a 1983 journey to the center of Borneo, which no expedition had attempted since 1926. O'Hanlon, accompanied by friend and poet James Fenton and three native guides brings wit and humor to a dangerous journey.

"Ye Gods, old man--don't do it!" you're bound to shriek on page 1 of this hilarious travelogue, on which the author lists the hazards that may befall him--vipers, cholera, crocs, ticks, tuberculosis, malaria, rabies, and 1,700 types of parasitic worms among them. After all, portly, over-the-hill London Times literary reviewer Redmond O'Hanlon hasn't done anything more aerobic than flip the pages of a book for decades; he wasn't even a Boy Scout. It's hardly reassuring that his colleague, poet James Fenton--who had the big idea to trek in Borneo--was a Boy Scout. He hated it, and besides, aged, balding Fenton, whom O'Hanlon describes as rather worm-like, sounds like he's a likely lunch for a swooping black eagle.

But on they trod--with the much-needed help of three Iban natives and an unseen, though oft-quoted river god--through jungle, across rivers whose height may rise seven feet overnight, and via native villages (where they often have late-night parties), with one goal in mind: seeing the fabled Borneo rhino. Fenton is nearly swept away in a whirlpool, they subsist on jungle-worm gruel, and ripping off sucking leeches is a near-daily occurrence, but cultural and natural insights and adventures abound in this rip-roaringly funny and deftly written travelogue that will have you chortling out loud. --Melissa Rossi

Springer Handbook of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (Springer Handbooks)

Springer Handbook of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (Springer Handbooks) Lowest new price: $194.34
Lowest used price: $172.00
List price: $299.00

This Handbook presents a complete and rigorous overview of the fundamentals, methods and applications of the multidisciplinary field of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), providing an exhaustive, one-stop reference work and a state-of-the-art description of GNSS as a key technology for science and society at large.

All global and regional satellite navigation systems, both those currently in operation and those under development (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS, IRNSS/NAVIC, SBAS), are examined in detail. The functional principles of receivers and antennas, as well as the advanced algorithms and models for GNSS parameter estimation, are rigorously discussed.  The book covers the broad and diverse range of land, marine, air and space applications, from everyday GNSS to high-precision scientific applications and provides detailed descriptions of the most widely used GNSS format standards, covering receiver formats as well as IGS product and meta-data formats.

The full coverage of the field of GNSS is presented in seven parts, from its fundamentals, through the treatment of global and regional navigation satellite systems, of receivers and antennas, and of algorithms and models, up to the broad and diverse range of applications in the areas of positioning and navigation, surveying, geodesy and geodynamics, and remote sensing and timing.

Each chapter is written by international experts and amply illustrated with figures and photographs, making the book an invaluable resource for scientists, engineers, students and institutions alike.
