KriSp
A collection of functions based in R/Fortran for interpolation of
large datasets using covariance tapering.
Written by Reinhard Furrer.
The package KriSp (Kriging with Sparse matrices)
is considered as an addon to the package fields . KriSp has a similar class
to one of fields and uses some of its methods. Further,
KriSp uses the package SparseM
to handle the sparse matrix techniques. Thus the package is not
exhaustive in its functionality compared to other geostatistical
packages like geoR . Also,
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)
Availability:
Currently, KriSp was successfully installed and tested on
the follwing platforms and versions.
 R2.4.0, i4686pclinuxgnu.
 R2.2.1, i486pclinuxgnu.
 R2.1.0, i386pclinuxgnu.
If you run 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
Fortran code:
The main functions are written in native R code.
The functions Krig.simple.sparse , Krig.sparse and
predict.sparse call supporting Fortran routines in order
to gain computing time.
