Does the Geostatistical Analyst support barriers?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


No. The current version of the Geostatistical Analyst does not support barriers or breaks in the semivariogram or covariance. Barriers can be used with the Spatial Analyst Extension using the Inverse Distance Weighted (IDW) interpolator to represent cliffs, ridges, islands, or other breaks in a landscape.
