Cover image: The figure shows the 2008 infection rates of enterovirus 71 (EV71), which affects the intestine of humans and can cause life-threatening neurological diseases, in the 309 townships of Taiwan that are largely separated by mountains and rivers or clumped in major metropolitan areas. The EV71 hotspots were clustered in urban areas but spread out in rural areas, which may be challenging to capture by the traditional spatial clustering methods. The authors developed a new approach to identifying clusters as spatially contiguous townships or as groups of townships with similar outcomes while accounting for potential risk factors and spatial correlation, effectively bridging spatial clustering and unsupervised classification. This comes fromFigure 1 in the article authored by Pei-Sheng Linand Jun Zhu, and entitled “A heterogeneity measure for cluster identification with application to disease mapping.
