Functional Data Analysis is a relatively new branch in Statistics. Experiments where a complete function is observed for each individual give rise to functional data. In this work we focus on the case of functional data presenting spatial dependence. The three classic types of spatial data structures (geostatistical data, point patterns and areal data) can be combined with functional data as it is shown in the examples of each situation provided here. We also review some contributions in the literature on spatial functional data.
