View My Initial Variance Map - Interview

This interview allows the user to view the uncertainties associated with the probabilities created during the View My Initial Probability Map interview. 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.
