Statistical Significance of Multiple Hotspot Locations

Discussion created by ekemp77 on Jul 13, 2011

I will be creating multiple hotspots for different archeolgical finds over an area. I want to overlay these hotspot results over each other to see if there is any areas where they are occuring in the same area.

I would think that visually I would be able to see where they overalp but is there a statistical way that I could describe how best the hotspots overlap each other? Eg in these locations the hotspots with p values less than 0.01 for all the finds overlap and can therefore be called a 'productive site'?

Hope this makes sense if not please ask.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
