Geodetic applications of statistical hypothesis tests
Mullarky, Jon Irving
MetadataShow full item record
Tile science of statistics can be of great use to geodesists and photogrammetrists in reducing and analyzing data obtained from measurements. This thesis will explore the applications of statistical hypothesis tests in the fields of geodesy. The data for examples have been taken from various studies in the field of geodetic science. In each case the source of the data is noted. Often the conclusions drawn by statistical tests will not agree with the conclusions drawn by the original experimenter. It is not the intent of this thesis to criticize the work of others, but only to give examples of how statistical tests may be used to guide geodesists in drawing conclusions from observed data.
