Space-filling location selection

Michela Bia () and Philippe Van Kerm ()

No 2013-17, LISER Working Paper Series from LISER

Abstract: This note describes a Stata implementation of a space-filling location selection algorithm. It optimally selects a subset from an array of locations so that the spatial coverage of the array by the selected subset is optimized according to a geometric criterion. Such an algorithm is useful in site selection problems, but also in various non-parametric estimation procedures, e.g. to select (multivariate) knot locations in spline regression analysis.
