Berman-Huntington points and lines data
These data come from an intensive geological survey of a 70 x 158 km region in central Queensland, Australia. They consist of 67 points representing copper ore deposits, and 146 line segments representing geological `lineaments'. Lineaments are linear features, visible on a satellite image, that are believed to consist largely of geological faults (Berman, 1986, p. 55). It would be of great interest to predict the occurrence of copper deposits from the lineament pattern, since the latter can easily be observed on satellite images.
These data were introduced and analysed by Berman (1986). They have also been studied by Berman and Turner (1992), Baddeley and Turner (2000) and Foxall and Baddeley (2002). Many analyses have been performed on the southern half of the data only. This subset is also provided.
