Update My Prior Variance Map - Interview

This interview allows the user to adjust the prior variance information with hard data. This map displays the variance map after sampled data has been imported.


This interview is available for all analyses with Geobayesian data type.

The user must set the update data and define a correlation model and search neighborhood.

Note: Although the Geobayesian is selected as the data type, the correlation models and search neighborhood are applied to the hard data selected during set update data.

SADA performs the indicator transformation behind the scenes after the user has determined the appropriate parameters for a feasible correlation model required by the geostatistical routine. The end goal is to parameterize the correlation mode. When Geobayesian is selected as the data type, only two modeling options exist: not used or exponential.
