Download and installation
The back-end of the INTAMAP web-processing service has been implemented as packages in the statistical language/environment R. This makes it possible to also use the developed methods interactively, from an R-session. There are currently 3 public R-packages that have been developed within the INTAMAP project, that can be installed jointly or separately.
- intamap The main package, with several interpolation methods and all the support tools necessary for running an interpolation service
- intamapInteractive Some additional functionality useful in interactive mode, such as bias correction and network optimization
- psgp A separate package with the the implementation of projected spatial gaussian process-method, currently only running under Linux
It is also possible to extend the functionality of the intamap package with own functions. This would typically be the case for users who want to implement a new interpolation method, or for users with data that needs particular pre- or postprocessing. See further description of adding new methods.
To be able to use R as a back-end for the WPS, it is also necessary to install Rserve. The wps connects to R using Rserve. This is described here.
