Mercer and Hall wheat yield data

Description

Mercer and Hall wheat yield data, based on version in Cressie (1993), p. 455.

Usage

1

Format

The format of the object generated by running data(wheat) is a three column data frame made available by Hongfei Li. The example section shows how to convert this to the object used in demonstrating the aple function, and is a: Formal class 'SpatialPolygonsDataFrame' [package "sp"] with 5 slots; the data slot is a data frame with 500 observations on the following 6 variables.

lat

local coordinates northings ordered north to south

yield

Mercer and Hall wheat yield data

r

rows south to north; levels in distance units of plot centres

c

columns west to east; levels in distance units of plot centres

lon

local coordinates eastings

lat1

local coordinates northings ordered south to north

Note

The value of 4.03 was changed to 4.33 (wheat[71,]) 13 January 2014; thanks to Sandy Burden; cross-checked with http://www.css.cornell.edu/faculty/dgr2/teach/R/mhw.csv, which agrees.
