GWR Gaussian weights function

Share:

Description

The gwr.gauss function returns a vector of weights using the Gaussian scheme:

w(g) = e^{{-(d/h)}^2}

where d are the distances between the observations and h is the bandwidth.

The default (from release 0.5) gwr.Gauss function returns a vector of weights using the Gaussian scheme:

w(g) = e^{-(1/2) {{(d/h)}^2}}

Usage

1
2
gwr.gauss(dist2, bandwidth)
gwr.Gauss(dist2, bandwidth)

Arguments

dist2

vector of squared distances between observations and fit point

bandwidth

bandwidth

Value

vector of weights.
