In the Library's collection

Spatial analysis as a subject term is not used in the online catalog. Instead, spatial analysis (statistics) is used. The term "statistics" is used to qualify or narrow the scope of the term. From the online catalog, you will find a over 70 resources that have to do with spatial analysis (statistics). Some of these volumes are more technical in nature and concentrate more on the mathematics involved in spatial analysis.

Most of these books are located in G 70.2 through G 70.4 in the Berry Level 4.

The following are just some of the books in the Library's collection.
