GeoDa™ 0.9.5-i - ESDA with Dynamically Linked Windows|
GeoDa, the Geodata Analysis software is the successor to
and a replacement for DynESDA2 and the DynESDA extension for
ArcView 3.x GIS. It is a freestanding program, built on
MapObjects LT2 technology, using the shape file format
as the standard for storing spatial information.
GeoDa consists of an interactive environment that combines
maps with statistical graphics, using the technology of dynamically
linked windows. Besides its mapping functionality (including
smoothers for rate maps) it contains the usual EDA graphs
(histogram, box plot, scatterplot) and implements brushing
for both maps and statistical plots. Maps can be constructed
for points as well as polygons, and tools are provided to
create one from the other (centroid computation, Thiessen
polygons), as well as to construct various types of spatial
weights. In addition, GeoDa contains a Moran scatterplot and
LISA maps, both univariate as well as bivariate.
GeoDa 0.9 beta was released in early February, 2003, and
is available for downloading from this site. The beta release
is free for non-commercial use only. Make sure to read and
