Dear Victoria

Firstly, from the output you have displayed it seems to me that you should
take the natural logarithm of your observations before doing the spatial
analysis.

Secondly, if you want a measure of how well your model is predicting you
could use sum((pred.-obs.)^2). That would in your case be the sum of 118
squared differences. If you then try to predict your response using
different types of models, you should chose the model with the lowest
sum((pred.-obs.)^2).

Best regards / Venlig hilsen
