View My Initial Probability Map - Interview

This interview allows the user to "paint" and view prior probability information. This map displays the probability map with soft data only, before sampled data has been imported.


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


These are the steps that display in the Steps Window when this interview is selected. Click on the links below for more details about the following steps.

1. Draw/Edit Prior

2. Set up the site

3. Set GIS Overlays

4. Show the results

5. Import Sampled Data

6. Format picture

7. Auto Document

8. Add to results gallery

Select the first step Draw/Edit Prior to develop the prior probability map for the Geobayesian data type. This map will then be displayed in the Graphics Window.


After creating an initial probability map and initial variance map, it is useful to develop a sample design. The purpose of this initial sample design is to reduce the number of samples required by optimizing sample locations and incorporating professional knowledge of the site.
