Dear list members,

In moran scatter plot, I checked
[1] Slope of lm((spatial lagged variable) ~ (variable)): moran coefficient
[2] Slope of lm((spatial lagged standardized variable) ~ (standardized
variable)): moran coefficient, and
[3] Slope of lm((standardized spatial lagged variable) ~ (standardized
variable)): correlation coefficient.
However, I think Anselin (1999) remark case [3] is moran coefficient. Is it

Anselin, L. (1999) Interactive techniques and exploratory spatial data
analysis. In: Longley P.A., Goodchild M.F., Maguire D.J., Rhind D.W. (eds)
Geographic information system: Principles, techniques, management and
applications, 253–266, Wiley, New York.
