A collection of functions based in R/Fortran for interpolation of
large datasets using covariance tapering.
Written by Reinhard Furrer.
KriSp (Kriging with Sparse matrices)
is considered as an add-on to the package
KriSp has a similar class
to one of
fields and uses some of its methods. Further,
KriSp uses the package
to handle the sparse matrix techniques. Thus the package is not
exhaustive in its functionality compared to other geostatistical
most functions are not fully optimized in order to enhance readability
of the code.
Current development version:
KriSp_0.4.tar.gz (November, 22, 2006)
KriSp was successfully installed and tested on
the follwing platforms and versions.
If you run
- R-2.4.0, i4686-pc-linux-gnu.
- R-2.2.1, i486-pc-linux-gnu.
- R-2.1.0, i386-pc-linux-gnu.
KriSp on other platforms, let me know.
The major methods include:
The kriging functions allow you to supply a covariance
function that is written in native code.
There are also generic functions that support these methods such as
plot - diagnostic plots of fit
summary - statistical summary of fit
print - shorter version of summary
surface - graphical display of fitted surface
predict - evaluation fit at arbitrary points
The main functions are written in native
predict.sparse call supporting Fortran routines in order
to gain computing time.
