7.8. Spatial statistics and scientific modelling

QGIS provides several tools for spatial statistics and interfaces to statistical software like R (http://www.r-project.org). This section demonstrates some introductory examples of how statistics of spatially related data can be processed, as well as suggestions for useful plugins and software to perform more sophisticated spatial analysis. If you search for a specific application linked to spatial statistics, browse through the QGIS Plugins (see section 7.1.3.) and have also a look at the projects and their features listed on the OSGEO website (http://www.osgeo.org). A more general introduction to statistics in honey bee research is provided in the BEEBOOK paper on statistics (Pirk et al., 2013).
