Statistical Methods for Spatio-temporal Data
Thursday, June 10, 2021

About the Event
“Spatio-temporal statistics” concern statistical methods for data measured in space and time. Many datasets we encounter are spatio-temporal data in the sense that observations are collected from multiple spatial locations over time (e.g. trend of housing price in a city, daily maximum temperature measured from multiple weather stations over time). Data from many scientific areas, including atmospheric science, geography, business, social science and epidemiology commonly require spatio-temporal statistical methods for accurate description of the data as well as prediction. This talk will give a general overview of spatio-temporal statistics with several real data application examples.
