For instance, a statistical test Chow that is updated dynamically helps analysts detect sub-regions that diverge from overall trends, as in the homicide case above a so-called Chow test is used to compare differences in the regression slopes of selected and unselected observations in a bivariate scatterplot.

For instance, the relationship between homicides and economic deprivation has been found to hold in urban but not in rural areas Messner and Anselin An Introduction to Spatial Data Analysis. It has one goal: Spatial statistical tests distinguish patterns that just look like spatial clusters from those that are spatial clusters with a degree of certainty, compared to spatially random patterns.

In some views, statistical results are recomputed on the fly. To translate data into insights, tools are needed that go beyond mapping the expected and towards geora the unexpected. To help researchers and analysts meet the data-to-value challenge. In comparison, residual maps from spatial models can show how model performance is improved across places.


Basemaps help contextualize the main map layer. This challenge involves translating data into insights. Another illustration is a map of residuals from a multivariate regression model to identify places where the model does not perform as well as tutoiral other places. As of Julyoveranalysts are using the program across the globe.

The complexity of making sense of the characteristics of one area is increased further by jointly analyzing multiple areas, now and over time. GeoDa supports the detection of insights in real time through an interactive design that dynamically updates the selection of data subsets across views.

By adding spatial statistical tests to simple map visualization, linking data views of spatial and non-spatial distributions, and enabling real-time exploration of spatial and statistical patterns.

The Averages Chart aggregates trends across time and space.

These views are linked to allow analysts to select subsets of a variable in any view and explore where in the spatial and non-spatial distribution these subsets fall. Examples of these statistical tests in GeoDa include so-called tutorrial indicators of spatial association LISA that locate statistically significant hot spots and cold spots on a map see LISA map below. GeoDa aids this process in several ways: Translating data into unexpected insights GeoDa is a user-friendly software program that has been developed since to support the free and open-source spatial analysis research infrastructure.


GeoDa helps structure the detection of new insights in this context by visualizing spatial and statistical distribution of each variable in separate views.

GeoDa is a user-friendly software program that has been developed since to support the free turorial open-source spatial analysis research infrastructure. The program is designed for location-specific data such as buildings, firms or disease incidents at the address level or aggregated to areas such as neighborhoods, districts or health areas. In another example, an averages chart aggregates values for selected locations and across time to statistically compare differences in trends for these sub-regions.

What differentiates GeoDa from other data analysis tools is its focus on explicitly spatial methods for these spatial data.
