      Hi Susan,

      I would recommend the Stanford Geostatistical Modeling Software (S-GeMS)
      that is public domain and that I use in all my short courses (some of your
      colleagues have actually be trained by me). The software can be downloaded from

      I was working through the tutorial for the Geostatistical Analyst Extension when this email discussion popped up. Any recommendations for a "traditional geostatistics software package"?

      Dear all,

      I have the same concerns with ArcGIS Geostatistical Analyst Extension (v.9.1). I would use a traditional geostatistics software package to fit the variogram models in a very traditional way, and input the parameters to ArcGIS for kriging. It seems that ArcGIS has its own reasons to show variograms in a non-traditional way, but I find it almost impossible to fit the variograms mannually. You can change the parameters, but it is very hard to see how well they fit. By the way, you can change the lag distance or interval in ArcGIS (it is called "lag size" there).
