VariogramFunction

VariogramFunction

is an option to SpatialEstimate that specifies the local variation model to use.

Details

  • VariogramFunction together with SpatialNoiseLevel is used to make local predictions of spatial values. Combining local predictions with a global trend gives the full spatial prediction function.
  • The local variation is described using a variogram , where is a spatial field of values. When the spatial field is weakly stationary and isotropic, gamma(p_1,p_2)=gamma(TemplateBox[{{{p, _, 1}, -, {p, _, 2}}}, Norm]). A typical isotropic variogram can be described in terms of its sill, range and noise variance.
  • For full details, see the EstimatedVariogramModel page.
  • The following settings can be used:
  • Automaticautomatically compute a variogram
    "model"fit "model" variogram
    {"model",pars}use "model" with given parameters pars
    VariogramModel[]use fully specified variogram model
  • The possible "model" values are given in VariogramModel.
