SearchNeighborhoodSmoothCircular

Summary

The SearchNeighborhoodSmoothCircular class can be used to define the search neighborhood for Empirical Bayesian Kriging, IDW, Local Polynomial Interpolation, and Radial Basis Functions (only when the INVERSE_MULTIQUADRIC_FUNCTION keyword is used). The class accepts inputs for the radius of the searching circle and a smoothing factor.

Syntax

SearchNeighborhoodSmoothCircular ({radius}, {smoothFactor})
ParameterExplanationData Type
radius

The distance, in map units, specifying the length of the radius of the searching circle.

Double
