GEOSTATS: Cost distance calculation
- Dear friends,
Some weeks ago, I did a question about contiguity matrix standarization. Thank
you very much Dr. Bivand for your help.
As I told you, I am doing a research about the application of spatial analysis
techniques to relate educational and geographical variables. Now I am trying to
measure the effort of children in rural areas to arrive their schools; they have
to walk one or more hours through a sloped pathway. I want to calculate the
effort they make, and later use these results to relate the effort with other
variables (like nutritional levels, efficiency in their school, access to
communication, etc). I think I have some options: the VARCOST function of
Idrisi, to construct a regression model based in observed data, to construct a
simple model based in physics laws (considering friction and gravitational
forces). What do you think about? Can somebody knows about some paper related
