Integrating GIS And R-Statistics

This demonstrates the dependence of geospatial analysis on BOTH geographic information systems software AND statistics. This demonstration combines the functionality of Maptitude from Caliper Corp and the open source R-Statistics. Starting with tabular data, the data is geocoded. Now a data layer, new data layers can be formed. In this demonstration a point data layer that has been geocoded is used to create polygons of geographic proximity. These polygons are overlaid with other data layers, in this instance a point layer and a polygon layer. The geographic proximity layer can now truly be considered a "new" data layer. Attributes of the new data layer are exported to a flat data file (CSV). R-Statistics then reads the flat data file and statistical operations are performed
