FREE Featured Paper: Visuanimation in Statistics

This paper explores the use of visualization through animations, coined visuanimation, in the field of statistics. In particular, it illustrates the embedding of animations in the paper itself and the storage of larger movies in the online supplemental material. It presents results from statistics research projects using a variety of visuanimations, ranging from exploratory data analysis of image data sets to spatio-temporal extreme event modelling; these include a multiscale analysis of classification methods, the study of the effects of a simulated explosive volcanic eruption and an emulation of climate model output.

Wiley is pleased to announce that Professor Marc G. Genton has taken over as Editor-in-Chief of Stat


Marc is currently Professor of Applied Mathematics and Computational Science at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia, where he leads a team conducting research in statistical analysis, modeling, prediction, and uncertainty quantification of spatio-temporal data. He has also received awards for his work in the field, such as the El-Shaarawi Award for Excellence from The International Environmetrics Society in 2010.

Marc brings a wealth of experience to the role and will undoubtedly steer Stat’s progression in new and exciting directions. In his new role, he plans to maintain Stat’s speed of publication and further improve the quality of accepted papers.
