I have a grid where I am calculating rates (kind of). My boss asked me why I used this moving grid. I could not answer her, I just thought it was cool.
Basically, I have a grid that is 25 miles on each side (625 square miles), I then remade the grid by shifting it 5 miles to the south a total of 4 times. The blocks were also shifted 5 miles to the east a total of 4 times (meaning I shifted the original block 24 times.
So what is the advantage in doing this? Is it written in a best practice text or something similar? By doing this method, I will get the absolute highest area vs just one grid, I understand that.
Am I making sense? Any advice or referrals would be appreciated.
