Researchers in the fields of climate change, environmental risk assessment, and public health often augment their data collection with existing data or work entirely with existing data from multiple sources. When the datasets have a spatial component, the datasets are often spatially misaligned. When the datasets are spatially misaligned, the data must be combined using a common set of geographical units before relationships can be assessed. If the datasets are combined using kriging, then the problem can be recast in a measurement error framework. In this work, we present two-stage likelihood based methods for estimating parameters in both linear and generalized linear regression models. The statistical properties of the estimators are presented and simulation studies are used to illustrate the performance of the methodology.
