What do you know about spatial analysis? What do you know about spatial statistics? Take this intelligent quiz to have an answer to those questions.

• 1.

### Which of these is not a type of spatial analysis?

• A.

Spatial data analysis

• B.

Spatial autocorrelation

• C.

Spatial stratified heterogeneity

• D.

Geospatial

D. Geospatial
Explanation
Geospatial is not a type of spatial analysis. Spatial data analysis, spatial autocorrelation, and spatial stratified heterogeneity are all techniques used in spatial analysis to study patterns and relationships in geographic data. Geospatial refers to the use of geographic information systems (GIS) and technologies to collect, analyze, and visualize spatial data, but it is not a specific type of spatial analysis technique.

### Spatial Analysis is also called one of these name?

• A.

Spatial Integration

• B.

Spatial Statistics

• C.

Spatial Unification

• D.

Spatial system

B. Spatial Statistics
Explanation
Spatial analysis is a field of study that involves examining the relationships between geographic data and using statistical techniques to analyze and interpret spatial patterns and trends. It encompasses various methods and tools for understanding spatial data, such as mapping, clustering, and regression analysis. Spatial statistics specifically focuses on applying statistical techniques to spatial data, helping to identify patterns, relationships, and correlations within the data. Therefore, Spatial Statistics is an appropriate alternative name for Spatial Analysis.

### Spatial analysis does not study one of the following fields of study.

• A.

Geometry

• B.

GeograpHy

• C.

Statistics

• D.

Topology

C. Statistics
Explanation
Spatial analysis is a field of study that focuses on analyzing and understanding spatial data and patterns. It involves various techniques and methods to analyze geographic information and relationships. Geometry, geography, and topology are all fields that are closely related to spatial analysis as they provide the foundational concepts and tools for understanding and representing spatial data. However, statistics is not directly considered as a field of study within spatial analysis. While statistics can be used as a tool within spatial analysis to analyze and interpret data, it is not a distinct field of study within the context of spatial analysis.

### What is GKD?

• A.

GeograpHic kinetics detection

• B.

GeograpHic knowledge discovery

• C.

GeograpHic kinetics discovery

• D.

GeograpHic knowledge detection

B. GeograpHic knowledge discovery
Explanation
Geographic knowledge discovery refers to the process of uncovering new insights and patterns from geographic data. It involves analyzing and interpreting spatial information to gain a better understanding of the relationships between different geographic features or phenomena. This can be done through various techniques such as data mining, spatial analysis, and visualization. By discovering new knowledge about geographic data, it becomes possible to make informed decisions and solve complex problems in fields like urban planning, environmental management, and transportation.

### How did epidemiology contribute to the development of spatial analysis?

• A.

Spatial population dynamics

• B.

Global plant distributions and local plant locations

• C.

Vegetation blocks

• D.

Disease mapping

D. Disease mapping
Explanation
Epidemiology contributed to the development of spatial analysis through disease mapping. By studying the patterns and distribution of diseases, epidemiologists were able to create maps that visually represented the spread and prevalence of different diseases in specific regions. This allowed for a better understanding of how diseases spread geographically and helped in identifying high-risk areas. Disease mapping also played a crucial role in identifying potential causes and risk factors associated with certain diseases, leading to the development of effective prevention and control strategies.

### Out of the following, which combination is mostly recognized as the origin of spatial analysis?

• A.

Surveying and statistics

• B.

CartograpHy and geograpHical information system

• C.

CartograpHy and surveying

• D.

Surveying and ethnograpHy

C. CartograpHy and surveying
Explanation
Cartography and surveying are mostly recognized as the origin of spatial analysis. Cartography involves the creation and interpretation of maps, while surveying involves the measurement and mapping of the Earth's surface. These two disciplines are fundamental in understanding and analyzing spatial data. By combining the knowledge and techniques from both cartography and surveying, spatial analysis can be conducted to study patterns, relationships, and trends in geographic data.

### Which of the following is NOT a fundamental issue spatial analysis is facing?

• A.

Construction of the analytic operations

• B.

Limitations and particularities of the analyses

• C.

Representation of analytic researches

• D.

Presentation of analytic results

C. Representation of analytic researches
Explanation
Spatial analysis is facing various fundamental issues, such as the construction of analytic operations, limitations and particularities of the analyses, and the presentation of analytic results. However, representation of analytic researches is not considered a fundamental issue in spatial analysis. This refers to how the research findings are communicated and shared, which is an important aspect but not directly related to the core challenges faced in spatial analysis.

### Which word best describes scientific modelling?

• A.

Organization

• B.

Body

• C.

Structure

• D.

Framework

D. Framework
Explanation
Scientific modelling is a process that involves creating simplified representations of complex systems or phenomena. These representations are used to understand, analyze, and predict the behavior of the real-world system. A framework is a structure or a set of guidelines that provides a foundation for organizing and developing something. In the context of scientific modelling, a framework refers to a structured approach or a conceptual structure that guides the creation and use of models. Therefore, "framework" is the best word to describe scientific modelling as it emphasizes the structured and organized nature of the process.

### In all of these subjects,spatial Analysis is related to except?

• A.

History

• B.

GeograpHy

• C.

Biology

• D.

pHysics

D. pHysics
Explanation
Spatial analysis is the study of spatial relationships and patterns. It involves examining how things are organized in space and analyzing the interactions between different spatial elements. History, geography, and biology all involve the study of spatial relationships to some extent. In history, spatial analysis can be used to understand the distribution of historical events and the impact of geography on historical developments. In geography, spatial analysis is a fundamental component of the discipline, as it involves studying the distribution of physical and human phenomena on the Earth's surface. In biology, spatial analysis is used to study the distribution of species and ecological patterns. Physics, on the other hand, does not typically involve the study of spatial relationships and patterns, as it focuses more on the fundamental laws and principles governing the natural world.
