A package called geoRglm to fit non-Gaussian geostatistical data using generalised spatial linear models models is now available thanks to a work lead by Ole Christensen, Inst. for Genetik og Bioteknologi, Aarhus Universitet.
Our development platform for geoR
is R running on a Linux system.
Versions for Windows© and Macintosh are also available.
Versions for S-PLUS (library geoS) are no longer maintained.
