AM-26 - Spatial sampling for statistical analysis

Learning Objectives: 
  • List and describe several spatial sampling schemes and evaluate each one for specific applications
  • Differentiate between model-based and design-based sampling schemes
  • Design a sampling scheme that will help detect when space-time clusters of events occur
  • Create spatial samples under a variety of requirements, such as coverage, randomness, and¬†transects
  • Describe sampling schemes for accurately estimating the mean of a spatial data set
