Geostatistical modelling, simulation, and prediction

Gstat is a computer program for geostatistical modelling, prediction and simulation in one, two, or three dimensions. Gstat uses gnuplot (a program for plotting functions) to display sample variograms and variogram functions. The program has a flexible command language. Spatial prediction options range from simple kriging to universal cokriging.
