SRMS Webinar

Yves Tillé presented the webinar “Innovations in Spatial Sampling” in March. The webinar, organized by and hosted in collaboration with ASA Professional Development and Chapters and Sections Manager Rick Peterson, was offered to the SRMS and ASA communities and non-members.

Tillé is a professor at the University of Neuchatel in Switzerland. His research interests include survey sampling and estimation in finite populations. During the webinar, he covered methods for spread sampling, measures for spreading, the wave method, and such methods and their applications as estimating obesity in the United States and Swiss biodiversity monitoring.
