Abstract Models for fitting spatio-temporal point processes should incorporate spatio-temporal inhomogeneity and allow for different types of interaction between points (clustering or regularity). This paper proposes an extension of the spatial multi-scale area-interaction model to a spatio-temporal framework. This model allows for interaction between points at different spatio-temporal scales and for the inclusion of covariates. We present a simulation study and fit the new model to varicella… 
Hierarchical Bayesian modeling of spatio-temporal area-interaction processes
A flexible spatio-temporal area-interaction point process is proposed that is suitable for describing the dependency between point patterns over time, when the new point pattern arises from the previous point pattern.
Noise Disturbances and Calls for Police Service in València (Spain): A Logistic Model with Spatial and Temporal Effects
There is a problem of "social" noise in València that is not exclusively a consequence of coexistence between local residents and external factors such as the increasing number of people on the streets during weekend nights or during summer months severely increase the chances of expecting a noise incident.

Spatio-temporal pattern discovery is an essential one in data mining for predictive analytics. Since it manages both space and time information depending on their characteristics and the preferred
On spatial and spatio-temporal multi-structure point process models
Spatial and spatio-temporal single-structure point process models are widely used in epidemiology, biology, ecology, seismology... . However, most natural phenomena present multiple interaction
A spatio-temporal multi-scale model for Geyer saturation point process: Application to forest fire occurrences
The spatial multi-scale Geyer point process model is extended to the spatio-temporal framework and the common methods for statistical inference in Gibbs models are compared, as the pseudo-likelihood and logistic likelihood approaches.


Second-order analysis of inhomogeneous spatio-temporal point process data
Second-order methods provide a natural starting point for the analysis of spatial point process data. In this note we extend to the spatio-temporal setting a method proposed by Baddeley et al.
Estimating Second-Order Characteristics of Inhomogeneous Spatio-Temporal Point Processes
Non-parametric estimates of the K-function and the pair correlation function play a fundamental role for exploratory and explanatory analysis of spatial and spatio-temporal point patterns. These
Point process methodology for on‐line spatio‐temporal disease surveillance
We formulate the problem of on-line spatio-temporal disease surveillance in terms of predicting spatially and temporally localised excursions over a pre-specified threshold value for the spatially
The Multi-scale Marked Area-interaction Point Process: A Model for the Spatial Pattern of Trees
The spatial pattern of trees in forests often combines different types of structure (regularity, clustering or randomness) at different scales. Taking species or size into account leads to marked
Logistic regression for spatial Gibbs point processes
We propose a computationally efficient technique, based on logistic regression, for fitting Gibbs point process models to spatial point pattern data. The score of the logistic regression is an
Characterization results and Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms including exact simulation for some spatial point processes
The area-interaction process and the continuum random-cluster model are characterized in terms of certain functional forms of their respective conditional intensities. In certain cases, these two
Area-interaction point processes
We introduce a new Markov point process that exhibits a range of clustered, random, and ordered patterns according to the value of a scalar parameter. In contrast to pairwise interaction processes,
Summary This paper describes a technique for computing approximate maximum pseudolikelihood estimates of the parameters of a spatial point process. The method is an extension of Berman & Turner’s
Spatio-temporal cluster detection of chickenpox in Valencia, Spain in the period 2008-2012.
To analyze the spatiotemporal pattern of the chickenpox incidence in the city of Valencia, Spain two complementary statistical approaches were used and the existence of clusters and spatio-temporal interaction was evaluated.
