I've been reading some materials on Spatial data analysis, and I've a good background in GLMs. Right now I'm looking to find an example in spatial generalized linear models, but so far I've not found any. I'm aware of some packages in R such as GeoR. etc. but couldn't find a concrete example that includes codes, data, and analysis.

I was wondering if anyone can help. Please share links or papers.

    $\begingroup$ The term "spatial model" is very broad. You could consider something to be a spatial model simply if you included the values of adjacent spatial locations in as a predictor (i.e. 'lagged predictors'). Can you be any more specific? $\endgroup$ – Macro Apr 12 '12 at 17:54

    $\begingroup$ On the contrary, Macro, spatial GLMs are well known and clearly defined (albeit of fairly recent origin). Actuary, have you seen the geoRGLM vignette at cran.r-project.org/web/packages/geoRglm/vignettes/…? For a full reference see Diggle & Ribeiro Jr., Model-based Geostatistics, Springer 2007. $\endgroup$ – whuber Apr 12 '12 at 17:59

    $\begingroup$ It also looks like chapters 8, 10 and 11 in Bivand's "Applied Spatial Data Analysis in R" book gives examples. The scope of that book is really amazing every time I go back to it, certainly worth having. $\endgroup$ – Andy W Apr 12 '12 at 18:45
  • $\begingroup$ @AndyW I came to this thread to recommend that book! $\endgroup$ – tchakravarty Nov 5 '12 at 18:50
