This website is primarily aimed at hobbyists and amateurs interested in astrostatistics. Astrostatistics is an area in the broad field of astronomy particularly suited to hobbyists, since many data sets collected by professional instruments are available for public use. Such files can be downloaded freely, and analyzed and processed on standard computers using open source software tools of professional quality.
Astrostatistics.org covers the overlapping and loosely defined fields of astrostatistics, astroinformatics and computational astronomy. It involves the application of statistical, analytical and computational methods to astronomical data.
