Mining boundary effects in areally referenced spatial data using the Bayesian information criterion

Pei Li, Sudipto Banerjee, Alexander M. McBean
2010 Geoinformatica  
We incorporate these edge configurations in spatially autoregressive models and demonstrate how the Bayesian Information Criteria (BIC) can be used to detect difference boundaries in the map.  ...  Statistical models for areal data are primarily used for smoothing maps revealing spatial trends. Subsequent interest often resides in the formal identification of 'boundaries' on the map.  ...  We view our current work as a relatively simple data-mining tool that can suggest influential boundary effects in health maps.  ...

Bayesian multivariate areal wombling for multiple disease boundary analysis

Haijun Ma, Bradley P. Carlin
2007 Bayesian Analysis  
We identify both composite and cancer-specific boundaries, selecting the best statistical model using the DIC criterion.  ...  Multivariate data summarized over areal units (counties, zip codes, etc.) are common in the field of public health. Estimation or testing of geographic boundaries for such data may have varied goals.  ...  The methods are illustrated using our SEER cancer data in Section 4, where models are compared using the Deviance Information Criterion (DIC; Spiegelhalter et al., 2002) .  ...

Spatial Modeling of Trends in Crime over Time in Philadelphia [article]

Cecilia Balocchi, Shane T. Jensen
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Bayesian modeling is a promising direction since areal data require principled sharing of information to address spatial autocorrelation between proximal neighborhoods.  ...  We develop several Bayesian approaches to spatial sharing of information between neighborhoods while modeling trends in crime counts over time.  ...  Mining boundary effects in areally referenced spatial data using the Bayesian information criterion.

Considering spatiotemporal processes in big data analysis: Insights from remote sensing of land cover and land use

Alexis Comber, Michael Wulder
2019 Transactions on GIS  
Using the domain of land cover/land use (LCLU), this article asserts that analyses of big data should be grounded in understandings of underlying process.  ...  The role of proximity in spatial process is well understood, but its value is much more uncertain for many temporal processes.  ...  . 290, emphasis added). and the deviance information criterion (Spiegelhalter, Best, Carlin, & Van Der Linde, 2002), for example, are both suited to Bayesian modeling with posterior model distributions  ...
