I am wondering about some good online resources for learning how to implement spatial statistical techniques, like Moran's I and Geary's C, or even K Nearest Neighbors...any help is appreciated. Thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ Could you clarify what you mean by "implement"? Are you seeking information about how to apply and interpret these techniques, or about algorithms for implementing them yourself in computer code? $\endgroup$ – whuber Aug 21 '14 at 18:50

Spatial Regression Models, by Michael D. Ward and Kristian Skrede Gleditsch is an exellent short introduction. Moran's I is explained on p.23.

Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R by Bivand, Pebesma, Gomez-Rubio is a popular choice for doing spatial modelling in R.

In terms packages, R , as usual, has many packages to do all sorts of spatial analysis. One package that computes Moran's I is ape For spatial kringing and the likes: gstat, akima, fields, gss
