predict.trls {spatial}R Documentation

Predict method for trend surface fits

Description

Predicted values based on trend surface model object

Usage

## S3 method for class 'trls':
predict(object, x, y, ...)

Arguments

object Fitted trend surface model object returned by surf.ls
x Vector of prediction location eastings (x coordinates)
y Vector of prediction location northings (y coordinates)
... further arguments passed to or from other methods.

Value

predict.trls produces a vector of predictions corresponding to the prediction locations. To display the output with image or contour, use trmat or convert the returned vector to matrix form.
