Universal Kriging Example

In this example we apply a regional linear trend to the kriging system.

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

from pykrige.uk import UniversalKriging

data = np.array(
        [0.3, 1.2, 0.47],
        [1.9, 0.6, 0.56],
        [1.1, 3.2, 0.74],
        [3.3, 4.4, 1.47],
        [4.7, 3.8, 1.74],

gridx = np.arange(0.0, 5.5, 0.5)
gridy = np.arange(0.0, 5.5, 0.5)

Create the universal kriging object. Required inputs are the X-coordinates of the data points, the Y-coordinates of the data points, and the Z-values of the data points. Variogram is handled as in the ordinary kriging case. drift_terms is a list of the drift terms to include; currently supported terms are ‘regional_linear’, ‘point_log’, and ‘external_Z’. Refer to UniversalKriging.__doc__ for more information.

UK = UniversalKriging(
    data[:, 0],
    data[:, 1],
    data[:, 2],

Creates the kriged grid and the variance grid. Allows for kriging on a rectangular grid of points, on a masked rectangular grid of points, or with arbitrary points. (See UniversalKriging.__doc__ for more information.)

z, ss = UK.execute("grid", gridx, gridy)
01 universal
