Description

Block prediction for objects of class glmssn-class

Usage

1
BlockPredict(object, predpointsID)

Arguments

object

an object of class glmssn

predpointsID

a valid prediction points ID

Details

This function operates on glmssn objects in much the same way as the predict function. BlockPredict uses the locations in the predpointsID data set to compute the average prediction value in the area defined by the prediction locations. These prediction locations are used to approximate the integral over that area, so they should be evenly spaced and dense in the area where block prediction is desired. The user needs to create these prediction locations and include them in the SSN object prior to fitting the model with glmssn.

Value

A data.frame with one row and two columns. The first column, BlockPredEst, is the average prediction value, and the second column, BlockPredSE, is the standard error of the block prediction.
