The subject surveys the theory of random fields, spatial processes, spatial statistics models, and their applications to a wide range of areas, including image analysis and GIS (geographic information system). The subject will cover the methodology and modern developments for spatial-temporal modelling, estimation and prediction, and spectral analysis of spatial processes. All the methods presented will be introduced in the context of specific datasets with GRASS and R software.
