Exercise 3980. Points 2, theme: Creating a Point Pattern

Open exercise
  1. Create point pattern of 1000 randomly located points which are clustered to 10 randomly placing clusters each with radius 20 km. All points must be in Estonian territory. Present the pattern as a figure with the figure legend.
  2. Is the composed pattern random? Does these points represent Estonian territory reliably enough?


The SDC includes a function for creating random point patterns.
1) the random points must be in 10 groups;
2) the same distance units are used for the XY coordinates of generated locations and when defining calculation parameters. Spatial statistics is not only about geographical data.
