Short Course in
Spatial Statistical Modeling of Ecosystem
Resources and the Environment
July 13-15, 2004, and August 17-19, 2004
Fort Collins, Colorado
Why This CourseThroughout the world, experts from a large variety of disciplines have strongly recommended the organization of training and educational activities on the use of quantitative spatial analysis techniques for supporting and advancing the science of monitoring and assessment of ecosystems and the environment. As a result, many governmental and private organizations have chosen the Department of Forest, Rangeland and Watershed Stewardship at Colorado State University for carrying out these recommendations.
PurposeThe purpose of this short course is to provide an introduction to the field of spatial statistics and its application to natural and environmental resource issues. Despite substantial methodological advances in the areas of remote sensing, geographical information systems and spatial statistics, the actual application of appropriate spatial techniques has been rather limited, even within the academic community of natural and environmental resource professionals.

July 13-15, 2004, and August 17-19, 2004
The lectures will be used to provide a general background in the techniques used for analyzing and interpolating spatial data. Real life examples will be used in class so students will develop an appreciation for the advantages and disadvantages of the different procedures. All sessions will be held on the main campus of Colorado State University.Registration (8:00 a.m. Tuesday, July 13, 2004 and Tuesday, August 17, 2004)
