bw.gwr: Bandwidth selection for basic GWR In GWmodel: Geographically-Weighted Models

Description

A function for automatic bandwidth selection to calibrate a basic GWR model

Usage

 ```1 2``` ```bw.gwr(formula, data, approach="CV",kernel="bisquare", adaptive=FALSE, p=2, theta=0, longlat=F,dMat) ```

Arguments

 `formula` Regression model formula of a formula object `data` a Spatial*DataFrame, i.e. SpatialPointsDataFrame or SpatialPolygonsDataFrame as defined in package sp `approach` specified by CV for cross-validation approach or by AIC corrected (AICc) approach `kernel` function chosen as follows: gaussian: wgt = exp(-.5*(vdist/bw)^2); exponential: wgt = exp(-vdist/bw); bisquare: wgt = (1-(vdist/bw)^2)^2 if vdist < bw, wgt=0 otherwise; tricube: wgt = (1-(vdist/bw)^3)^3 if vdist < bw, wgt=0 otherwise; boxcar: wgt=1 if dist < bw, wgt=0 otherwise `adaptive` if TRUE calculate an adaptive kernel where the bandwidth (bw) corresponds to the number of nearest neighbours (i.e. adaptive distance); default is FALSE, where a fixed kernel is found (bandwidth is a fixed distance) `p` the power of the Minkowski distance, default is 2, i.e. the Euclidean distance `theta` an angle in radians to rotate the coordinate system, default is 0 `longlat` if TRUE, great circle distances will be calculated `dMat` a pre-specified distance matrix, it can be calculated by the function `gw.dist`

Value

Returns the adaptive or fixed distance bandwidth

Note

For a discontinuous kernel function, a bandwidth can be specified either as a fixed (constant) distance or as a fixed (constant) number of local data (i.e. an adaptive distance). For a continuous kernel function, a bandwidth can be specified either as a fixed distance or as a 'fixed quantity that reflects local sample size' (i.e. still an 'adaptive' distance but the actual local sample size will be the sample size as functions are continuous). In practise a fixed bandwidth suits fairly regular sample configurations whilst an adaptive bandwidth suits highly irregular sample configurations. Adaptive bandwidths ensure sufficient (and constant) local information for each local calibration. This note is applicable to all GW models
