k-nearest neighbors prediction and classification for spatial data

By Mohamed-Salem Ahmed, Mamadou N'diaye, Mohammed Kadi Attouch and Sophie Dabo-Niang


We propose a nonparametric predictor and a supervised classification based on the regression function estimate of a spatial real variable using k-nearest neighbors method (k-NN). Under some assumptions, we establish almost complete or sure convergence of the proposed estimates which incorporate a spatial proximity between observations. Numerical results on simulated and real fish data illustrate the behavior of the given predictor and classification method
