We described the key features of the pragmatic geostatistical methodology aiming at resolving the following drawbacks of classical geostatistical models: assuming that the data is the realization of a stationary process; assuming that the data values are distributed according to Gaussian distribution; describing the data with a single generating model; not accounting for the model uncertainty in prediction; and not supporting coincident data and individual measurement errors. Our variant of empirical Bayesian kriging (EBK) is a fast and reliable solution for both automatic and interactive data interpolation. It can be used for interpolation of very large datasets up to billions of points. The following features are discussed: the informative prior distribution construction and usage; automatic data transformation of the dependent variable into a Gaussian distribution; data subsetting and merging the estimated models; and interpolation over large areas on the earth's surface. We conducted one simulation experiment and two case studies using highly variable data to investigate the EBK predicting quality.

Decoding the properties of immune repertoires is key to understanding the adaptive immune response to challenges such as viral infection. One important quantitative property is differential usage of I...
Developments in information technology (IT) have driven a push in healthcare innovation in the emergency department (ED). Many of these applications rely on mobile technology (MT) such as smartphones ...
To understand decision-making behavior in simple, controlled environments, Bayesian models are often useful. First, optimal behavior is always Bayesian. Second, even when behavior deviates from optima...
This paper asks whether integrating multimodal EEG and fMRI data offers a better characterisation of functional brain architectures than either modality alone. This evaluation rests upon a dynamic cau...
