GEOSTATS: Ellipse information
- Dear users,
I am not that proficient in GeoStats but rather more in GIS mapping.
I have been able to obtain a script that calculates the Jennrich
Turner Home Range (ellipse output) of a distribution of points in an
area. The output statistics of this ellipse is:
- mean of X
- mean of Y
(these will represent the unweighted centroid)
-the primary axis length
-the secondary axis length
My question is thus this:
What does the area, the primary and secondary axis length, and the
angle indicates regarding the distribution of these points (using a
95% confidence limit)?
Any light on this will be appreciated.
