Spatial Point Pattern Analysis Workshop


Monday, 3 Sept. - Wednesday, 5 Sept.


The University of Melbourne, Parkville Campus

Spatial data that take on the form of a map or point locations are common in a wide range of scientific fields. Methods to appropriately analyse such data have developed tremendously over the past 25 years. This 3-day workshop will cover many of these recently developed methods, available in the Spatstat package in R and described in the book ‘Spatial Point Patterns Methodology and Applications in R’ by Adrian Baddeley, Ege Rubak and Rolf Turner.

This workshop will consist of a mixture of lectures and computer-based exercises, and will be taught by three field experts:

  • Prof. Adrian Baddeley from Curtin University, Western Australia
  • Prof. Rolf Turner from Auckland University, New Zealand 
  • Dr. Tilman Davies from the University of Otago, New Zealand
