MS Excel Add-In for Geostatistics
A Microsoft Excel
Add-In for calculating semivariance, covariance, autocorrelation, and drift
of spatial data is available. Simply download the Add-In and place it in the MS
Excel directory where your other Add-Ins are stored. Under Tool/Add-Ins menu in
Excel check the box next to Geostatistics.Xla. The new 'Geostatistics' function
should appear under the Tools menu. The add-in only works with MS Excel 97. This
is a beta version, so any bugs should be reported to
