Abstract

A contribution to inverse-distant method is presented with a corresponding software for the calculation and cartographic presentation of results. The aim is to obtain the tool by which a researcher can express his creation in spatial interpretation with an adequate control of results. The method is based on inverse-distant prediction of the value of grid data by the application of the following basic function: y=yt e"^. The basic function is extended by the introduction of influencing coefficients: global, which affects the "global" form of the function, class, resulting from any given number of classes, i.e. the class to which the true values belong, and grid coefficient whose value depends on grid dens
