## Summary

The SearchNeighborhoodStandardCircular class can be used to define the search neighborhood for Empirical Bayesian Kriging, IDW, Local Polynomial Interpolation, and Radial Basis Functions.

## Syntax

SearchNeighborhoodStandardCircular ({radius}, {angle}, {nbrMax}, {nbrMin}, {sectorType})

Parameter | Explanation | Data Type |

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

angle | The angle of the search circle. This parameter will only affect the angle of the sectors. | Double |

nbrMax | Maximum number of neighbors, within the search ellipse, to use when making the prediction. | Long |

nbrMin | Minimum number of neighbors, within the search ellipse, to use when making the prediction. | Long |

sectorType | The searching ellipse can be divided into 1, 4, 4 with an offset of 45º, or 8 sectors. | String |

## Properties

Property | Explanation | Data Type |

angle (Read and Write) | The angle of the search ellipse. | Double |

radius (Read and Write) | The distance, in map units, specifying the length of the radius of the searching circle. | Double |

nbrMax (Read and Write) | Maximum number of neighbors, within the search ellipse, to use when making the prediction. | Long |

nbrMin (Read and Write) | Minimum number of neighbors, within the search ellipse, to use when making the prediction. | Long |

nbrType (Read Only) | The neighborhood type: Smooth or Standard. | String |

sectorType (Read and Write) | The searching ellipse can be divided into 1, 4, 4 with an offset of 45º, or 8 sectors. | String |
