    Special Issue on Spatial Statistics Research


    Spatial statistics is a rapidly developing field involving the quantitative analysis of spatial data and the statistical modeling of spatial variability and uncertainty. It is used in environmental disciplines such as agriculture, geology, soil science, hydrology, ecology, but also social-economic domains such as human geography, spatial econometrics, epidemiology, and disease mapping. The goal of this Special Issue is to provide a platform for scientists worldwide to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of spatial statistics.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring spatial statistics research. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Space-time statistics
    • Spatial data quality and uncertainty
    • Spatial econometrics
    • New spatial data sources
    • Image analyses
    • Applications


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Spatial Statistics Research” should be selected during your submission.
