Spatial Statistics: Towards Spatial Data Science Conference 2019
Sprache des Tagungstitel:
In many spatial data collections tasks it is popular to spread out the measurements uniformly across the design space, yielding so-called space-filling designs. Most of the literature attempts to achieve this aim by optimizing a prescribed objective measuring a degree of space-fillingness (see eg. Pronzato and Müller, 2012), sometimes combined with an estimation or prediction oriented criterion. Let us label those as ?soft? space-filling methods. In contrast ?hard? space-filling methods ensure desirable properties by enforcing constraints on the designs, as for instance provided by privacy sets (see Benková et al. 2016), such that a secondary criterion can be used for optimization. External constraints such as on the design region or else can be incorporated in a similar manner.
This talk provides a fresh look on the role of privacy sets for the construction of space-filling designs with new algorithms and new examples. In contrast to the privacy sets considered in our previous work, the new constraints guarantee some minimal distance between any two design points, which spreads out the measurements across the design space in a very natural way.
