About Us

Who are we?

GASA is an association created to promote the professional interests of Geostatisticians through:

  • Increasing awareness of Geostatistics and the application of spatial statistics in Southern Africa
  • Facilitating communication between practitioners
  • Representing the opinions of professional Geostatisticians to the public and industry

Historically, the science of Geostatistics has been developed within the context of the Mining and Petroleum industry, but it can also be practically applied in the fields of environment, agriculture, forestry, fishery and epidemiology.
