rfokrfidwcv | R Documentation |

This function is a cross validation function for the average of the hybrid method of random forest and ordinary kriging and the hybrid method of random forest and inverse distance weighting (RFOKRFIDW).

rfokrfidwcv( longlat, trainx, trainy, cv.fold = 10, mtry = function(p) max(1, floor(sqrt(p))), ntree = 500, idp = 2, nmaxok = 12, nmaxidw = 12, vgm.args = ("Sph"), block = 0, predacc = "VEcv", ... )

`longlat` |
a dataframe contains longitude and latitude of point samples (i.e., trainx and trainy). |

`trainx` |
a dataframe or matrix contains columns of predictive variables. |

`trainy` |
a vector of response, must have length equal to the number of rows in trainx. |

`cv.fold` |
integer; number of folds in the cross-validation. if > 1, then apply n-fold cross validation; the default is 10, i.e., 10-fold cross validation that is recommended. |

`mtry` |
a function of number of remaining predictor variables to use as the mtry parameter in the randomForest call. |

`ntree` |
number of trees to grow. This should not be set to too small a number, to ensure that every input row gets predicted at least a few times. By default, 500 is used. |

`idp` |
numeric; specify the inverse distance weighting power. |

`nmaxok` |
for local predicting: the number of nearest observations that should be used for a prediction or simulation, where nearest is defined in terms of the space of the spatial locations. By default, 12 observations are used for OK. |

`nmaxidw` |
for local predicting: the number of nearest observations that should be used for a prediction or simulation, where nearest is defined in terms of the space of the spatial locations. By default, 12 observations are used for IDW. |

`vgm.args` |
arguments for vgm, e.g. variogram model of response variable and anisotropy parameters. see notes vgm in gstat for details. By default, "Sph" is used. |

`block` |
block size. see krige in gstat for details. |

`predacc` |
can be either "VEcv" for vecv or "ALL" for all measures in function pred.acc. |

`...` |
other arguments passed on to randomForest or gstat. |

A list with the following components: for numerical data: me, rme, mae, rmae, mse, rmse, rrmse, vecv and e1; or vecv.

This function is largely based on rf.cv (see Li et al. 2013) and rfcv in randomForest. When 'A zero or negative range was fitted to variogram' occurs, to allow gstat running, the range was set to be positive by using min(vgm1$dist). In this case, caution should be taken in applying this method, although sometimes it can still outperform IDW and OK.
