Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R

I have just reviewed the book Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R which has been published in the September2009  issue of the Royal Statistical Society’s Significance magazine.


Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R is an accessible text that demonstrates and explains the handling of spatial data using the R Software Platform. The text’s authors have all been key contributors to the R spatial data analysis community, and the range of their contributions is evident from the comprehensive coverage of this work. It will appeal to those familiar with R but not spatial data, and vice versa, as well as those proficient in both and in search of a reference text. I highly recommend the book to those interested in embarking on spatial data analysis, those proficient in handling spatial data in other software and want to utlise R, and those already using R to manipulate and analyze spatial data.
