INTeroperability and Automated MAPping: INTAMAP The INTAMAP project is a project for development of an interoperable framework for real time automatic mapping of critical environmental variables by extending spatial statistical methods and employing open, web-based, data exchange and visualisation tools. All the methods and implementations of methods are open source and downloadable from these pages. Additionally the UncertML candidate standard for communicating uncertainty was developed. The project can be seen to consist of four parts: Statistical back-end, implemented in R which contains implementations of traditional geostatistical interpolation methods, new methods (Spatial copulas and Projected Spatial Gaussian Process) and support tools.
