What is the most commonly used Kriging algorithm?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


Ordinary kriging. This method produces interpolation values by relying on an unknown mean value, allowing local influences due to nearby neighboring values. When the mean is unknown, there are few assumptions. This makes ordinary kriging particularly flexible, but potentially less powerful than other methods.
