SAS for Mixed Models
SAS for Mixed Models
Paperback      ISBN: 1590475003
Mixed linear models are a standard part of most graduate-level statistics courses but, according to the authors (a team of statisticians from the U. of Florida, Kansas State U., U. of Nebraska, and SAS Institute) of this text, students and practicing statisticians frequently retain questions about the proper application of mixed model methodologies. They provide guidance on the implementation of mixed models in the statistical software package SAS 9.1. Examples are taken from a wide range of application areas and range from introductory examples to technically advanced case studies. New to this edition are chapters on diagnostics for mixed models based on residuals and influence analysis, calculation of statistical power of tests, and mixed modeling from a Bayesian perspective. The CD-ROM contains all of the data sets used in the book as well as the SAS code necessary to perform the mixed model analyses. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
PostGIS in Action
PostGIS in Action
Paperback      ISBN: 1935182269
Whether you're canvassing a congressional district, managing a sales region, mapping city bus schedules, or analyzing local cancer rates, thinking spatially opens up limitless possibilities for database users. PostGIS, a freely available open-source spatial database extender, can help you answer questions that you could not answer using a mere relational database. Its feature set equals or surpasses proprietary alternatives, allowing you to create location-aware queries and features with just a few lines of SQL code. PostGIS in Action is the first book devoted entirely to PostGIS. It will help both new and experienced users write spatial queries to solve real-world problems. For those with experience in more traditional relational databases, this book provides a background in vector-based GIS so you can quickly move to analyzing, viewing, and mapping data. Advanced users will learn how to optimize queries for maximum speed, simplify geometries for greater efficiency, and create custom functions suited specifically to their applications. It also discusses the new features available in PostgreSQL 8.4 and provides tutorials on using additional open source GIS tools in conjunction with PostGIS. Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
