Blackbox kriging: spatial prediction without specifying variogram models



Blackbox kriging: spatial prediction without specifying variogram models



Journal of Agricultural, Biological, and Environmental Statistics 1(3): 297-322



A flexible family of variograms was used in kriging instead of one of the traditionally used parametric models. This nonparametric approach minimizes the problems of misspecifying the variogram model. The flexible variogram family was developed using the idea of a moving average function composed of small rectangles for the one-dimensional case and many small boxes for the two-dimensional case.
