Spatial sampling for mapping

Date: 22 April 2015 - 24 April 2015
Location: Wageningen University

Sound sampling design is essential for the collection of data to support reliable scientific inference and decision making for management and policy. What counts as a sound design depends on the problem of interest, and the nature of the inference that is required. Many statistical analyses of spatial data, particularly for the prediction of local values as in mapping, are done in a model-based context in which data are treated as realizations of an underlying random process. In this setting it is not necessary to select sampling locations by probability sampling, and there is scope to optimize sampling patterns computationally.
