R package convoSPAT: Convolution-Based Nonstationary Spatial Modeling. Fits convolution-based nonstationary Gaussian process models to point-referenced spatial data. The nonstationary covariance function allows the user to specify the underlying correlation structure and which spatial dependence parameters should be allowed to vary over space: the anisotropy, nugget variance, and process variance. The parameters are estimated via maximum likelihood, using a local likelihood approach. Also provided are functions to fit stationary spatial models for comparison, calculate the kriging predictor and standard errors, and create various plots to visualize nonstationarity.
