Abstract: 

Geostatistics is sometimes a difficult leap for even those individuals well versed in classical statistics. The impact of data location in spatial statistics may be only vaguely understood initially. Visualization tools that allow the student or practitioner to see the impact of moving data, adding additional data, deleting data, adding fault lines, changing search radiuses, and so forth aid the learning of geostatistical concepts. Due to page limitations only a few items are briefly illustrated. This visualization software called the Kriging Game is available free at http://geoecosse.bizland.com/softwares/ . This site also has other free geostatistical software and tutorials.
