In the present paper, a novel spatial quantile regression model based on the Birnbaum-Saunders distribution is formulated. This distribution has been widely studied and applied in many fields. To formulate such a spatial model, a parameterization of the multivariate Birnbaum-Saunders distribution, where one of its parameters is associated with the quantile of the respective marginal distribution, is established. The model parameters are estimated by the maximum likelihood method. Finally, a data set is applied for illustrating the formulated model.
