#' sptotal: A package used for performing Finite Population Block
#' Kriging (FPBK) on polygonal count data.
#'
#' The package provides an option to perform FPBK on counts assuming
#' perfect detection of counts on the sites that were in the survey sample. The
#' functions in the package use methods in (Ver Hoef, 2008,
#'  <doi:10.1007/s10651-007-0035-y>)
#'
#' \code{sptotal} Main Functions:
#'
#' \code{\link{slmfit}} fits a spatial linear model to the response on the
#' observed/sampled sites.
#' The function \code{\link{check.variogram}} can be used to construct
#' an empirical variogram of the residuals of the spatial linear model.
#'
#' \code{\link{predict.slmfit}} uses the spatial linear model fit from \code{\link{slmfit}} and finite
#' population block kriging to predict the response at unobserved locations.
#' A prediction for the total response as well as a prediction variance
#' are given by default.
#'
#' \code{\link{get.predinfo}} and \code{\link{get.predplot}} take the resulting object from
#'  \code{\link{predict.slmfit}} to construct (1) summary information, including the
#'  prediction, prediction variance, and a prediction interval as well as
#'  (2) a plot of the site-wise predictions.
#'
#' Most of the remaining functions in the package are either helper functions
#' or extra optional functions to extract various specific things from an
#' \code{\link{slmfit}} object, such as residuals, AIC, log-likelihood, etc.
