7.9. Case study – zonal statistics with land cover properties
Until now, several concepts and tools in QGIS have been introduced.
Now, to combine some of the different tasks discussed, a case study will be
presented. Within this short case study, geostatistical relationships between
honey bee colonies and land cover properties will be calculated. The content of
this case study is equal to the one for ArcGIS (see section 6.9.), but adapted
to the tools of QGIS. The prerequisites for this case study include an opened
QGIS project (see sections 7.3.1. and 7.3.3.) with a point vector layer (e.g.
the honey bee colony locations bees_colony_locations.shp, created in section
184.108.40.206.) and a buffer polygon layer (e.g. bees_colony_locations_buffer.shp, created in section 7.6.1.). For more
information about this case study see section 6.9.
