Description

A function to create a regular grid over an observation window in order to model the spatial randome effects as a Gaussian Markov random field.

Usage

1
getgrd(shape, cellwidth)

Arguments

shape

an object of class SpatialPolygons or SpatialPolygonsDataFrame

cellwidth

a scalar, the width of the grid cells

Value

a SpatialPolygons object: the grid on which prediction of the spatial effects will occur
