Patrick Brown (Department of Statistical Sciences, University of Toronto): "Geostatistics for Aggregated Data, and Making Maps in R: a Talk in Two Parts"
Abstract: The talk will begin with a presentation on making maps in R with the mapmisc package. Producing maps with background map layers, non-standard map projections, and colour scales will be demonstrated. The second part of the talk will cover spatial point process models for aggregated data using the local-EM algorithm. A prototype R package for this method will be demonstrated, provided it has been written before the talk commences.
