## Default S3 method:
methodParameters(object)
## S3 method for class 'copula'
methodParameters(object)
## S3 method for class 'idw'
methodParameters(object)

Arguments

object

a list object. Most arguments necessary for interpolation are passed through this object. See intamap-package for further description of the necessary content of this variable

Details

The function creates a text-string that makes it possible to add the the method parameters (anisotropy and idw-parameter, variogram model or copula parameters) to the object in a later call to createIntamapObject or interpolate without having to re-estimate the parameters. This function is particularly useful when interpolate is called from a Web Processing Service, and the user wants to reuse the method parameters. The function is mainly assumed to be called from within interpolate.

The default method assumes a variogram model of gstat type, e.g. a variogram similar to what can be created with a call to vgm. Also psgp uses this variogram model.

Value

A string that, when parsed, will recreate the methodParameters
