View source: R/gwr.bw.est.R

Description

Estimate the kernel function bandwidth with cross-validation

Usage

1
gwr.bw.est(form, locs, data, kernel = "exp", cv.tol)

Arguments

form

A regression model forumula, as in the functions lm and glm

locs

A matrix of spatial coordinates of data points, where the x coordinate is first, then the y coordinate; coordinates are assumed to not be latitude and longitude, as Euclidean distance is calculated from coordinates

data

A data frame with data to fit model

kernel

A kernel weighting function, either exp or gauss, where exponential function is default

cv.tol

A stopping tolerance in terms of cross-validation error for the bi-section search routine to estimate the kernel bandwidth using cross-validation; if missing an internally calculated value is used

Details

This function estimates the kernel bandwidth in a GWR model with leave-one-out cross-validation. It does not estimate the final regression coefficients or outcome variable.

Value

A list with the following items:

phi

Kernel bandwidth

RMSPE

Root mean squared prediction error from bandwidth estimation

cv.score

Sum of squared prediction errors from bandwidth estimation
