Re: [R] definition of variogram

Semi-variogram is defined as sum of observation difference between pairs of certain range of distance divided by 2N.  

            Gamma(h) = 1 / 2N(h) (Sum (z(u)-z(u+h))^2)  

You can take look 'GSLIB: Geostatistical Software Library and User's Guide' Oxford University Press (CV Deutsch & AG Journel).  

I'm new to R, so I don't really know spatial analysis package, but I'm sure there is. If not you can use GSLIB, which is almost as user-unfriendly as R - at least for me.  

Hope this helps.
