Deprecation warning

The main functions of sperrorest have been integrated into mlr. Review is still ongoing. Once it is available in the CRAN version of mlr we will let you know. There will be no active development of sperrorest anymore. We recommend to use mlr for all future (spatial) cross-validation work. We will provide an tutorial for spatial data in the mlr-tutorial soon.


Project Status: Active – The project has reached a stable, usable state and is being actively developed. DOI

Spatial Error Estimation and Variable Importance

This package implements spatial error estimation and permutation-based spatial variable importance using different spatial cross-validation and spatial block bootstrap methods. To cite sperrorest in publications, reference the paper by Brenning (2012). To see the package in action, please check the vignette.
