I am working in QGIS 2.18.14 to which i am fairly new. I am trying to perform a nearest neighbor analysis, however it returns 0 for the observed mean distance. the expected distance is also an absurdly small number:
Observed mean distance: 0.0 Expected mean distance: 8.02080627703e-05 Nearest neighbour index: 0.0 Number of points: 78 Z-Score: -16.8957775986
When I measure the distances between points using the Measure Line Tool i get normal values around 5-20 meters. My best guess is that since my points are in Lat-Long, it's performing calculations in lat-long instead of in meters, but i don't know why it would do that or how i could fix it. All layers are in the same CRS (WGS 84 EPSG:4326). with on-the-fly crs transformation off.
