Abstract:

The general linear model is the connecting thread that weaves through many aspects of map preparation, map analysis, and map interpretation. The Q-mode factor map and the discriminant function map are examples. The general linear model is also the basis for polynomial and Fourier map-analysis models, both of which are widely used in a variety of geological fields. Coefficient space, developed in AD-655 445, is further examined here, and the extension of map analysis to the estimation of trends in coefficient matrices is introduced with an example. Author
