  corSpatial is a virtual class: the real classes derived from it (corGaus, corLin, corSpher, corExp) are listed.

  I suppose there would be some argument for adding corSpatial to the "see also" list -- although it is listed on each of the specific pages for the four real spatial classes, so you would certainly get there if you were poking around in the documentation. mailing list PLEASE do read the posting guide and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.
