Spatial Analysis week 4 Locational Quotient- how is data distributed across an area? Compares local concentration to regional concentration Coefficient of Localization- expresses the extent or degree of localization on a scale of zero to one Gini Coefficient- global measure, measures dissimilarity or geographic association, Maximum difference in the cumulative % of the two distribution, measuring the area between 2 curves. Note: same number as coefficient of localization except is a percentage so is 100 times as large Problems:  Sampling distribution is unknown  LQ scales around unity (below norm; 0-1, above norm; 1-infinity)  Boundary problem Processes in Geography:  Deterministic  Probabilistic: random and stochastic Types of Random Variables - Discrete - Continuous Classical Probability P(A) =n/m n- number of outcomes in event A m- number of outcomes in sample space Empirical Probability Basic probability concepts - Probability of all elementary outcomes is 1 Multiplication Rule- Used to find the joint probability of two independent events P(AorB) overlap Probability of A given B; dependent of each other ; P(A)xP(B)/ P(AlB) Addition rule, Probability that card is a King or red. 9/22 Probability Distributions Uniform Binomial Geographic Uniform Distribution: Truly uniformly distributed geographic phenomena are somewhat rare We often encounter the situation of not knowing how something is distributed until we sample it. Binomial Distribution: probability of the repetition of events when there are only two possible outcomes. - Bernoulli Trials
