Abstract

EcoSSe—Eco Spatial Statistical evaluation I. Clark Geostokos (EcoSSe) Limited, Scotland. Abstract EcoSSe is a new Windows NT and 95/98 based application which has been developed from the more elaborate mining package, Geostokos Toolkit. It provides facilities for basic statistical analysis and advanced geostatistical analysis of sample data located in two dimensions. The Toolkit software has been developed over 25 years with some of its main extensions prompted by environmental work. For example, simulation methods were developed during work on the proposed nuclear waste isolation project in Texas in the 1980's (ONWI), whilst methods to deal with highly skewed distributions were prompted by investigation of toxic waste leakages into groundwater in Eastern USA. EcoSSe has been produced to provide the non-specialist user with a "cheap and cheerful" approach to geostatistical analysis. Documentation includes tutorial runs to familiarise the user with the features and
