Recent studies have attempted to optimize the configuration of sample sites for estimation of the variogram by the usual method-of-moments. This paper shows that objective functions can readily be defined for estimation by the method of maximum likelihood. In both cases an objective function can only be defined for a specified variogram so some prior knowledge about the spatial variation of the property of interest is necessary. This paper describes the principles of the method, using Spatial… CONTINUE READING
