Bridging R with ArcGIS - Examples


Using R as a scripting tool to generate geostatistical tools for ArcGIS to work with.

  • This Repository has two tools as of now meant for kriging and Point pattern analysis
    • The kriging tool is enabled to perform Ordinary kriging and Universal kriging while the other performs the estimation of density of point pattern and simulates point pattern.
  • The Ordinary kriging simply interpolates the values.
  • The Universal kriging uses a covariate [sqrt(dist)] to interpolate the values.
  • The point pattern tool estimates the density and simulates a point pattern with the estimated density.


Ordinary and Universal kriging use the gstat package for R:

Point Pattern analysis uses the spatstat package for R:

All tools depend on the R Statistical Computing Software:
