Geostatistical Classification and Class Kriging
Journal of Geographic Information and Decision Analysis, Vol. 2., No. 2, pp. 77-90, 1998.
A new method is proposed for the classification of data in a spatial context, based on the minimization of a variance-like criterion taking into account the spatial correlation structure of the data. Kriging equations satisfying classification bias conditions are then derived for interpolating the rainfall data while taking into account the classification.
