AI-GEOSTATS: Correlation between two variables and spatial dependence
- Dear list,
A friend read a statement in an article but she was wondering if it was
To calculate a "normal" correlation between two variables, the variables
shouldn't be spatially dependent. Meaning variables z1 and z2 don't
exhibit any spatial dependence and the variables could be considered
random distributed across a sample grid x,y. Only under these conditions
the normal correlation coeff. and statistics could be used.
Any input on this?
And what if there is spatial dependence?
I hope it makes a little sense, I didn't have access to the article itself
so I had to do it with a simple explanation of my friend.
