  • Comparison of spatial prediction techniques for developing Pinus radiata productivity surfaces across New Zealand

    Palmer, David John; Hock, Barbara K.; Kimberley, Mark O.; Watt, Michael S.; Lowe, David J.; Payn, Tim W. (Elsevier, 2009)
    Spatial interpolation is frequently used to predict values across a landscape enabling the spatial variation and patterns of a property to be quantified. Inverse distance weighting (IDW), ordinary kriging (OK), regression ...
  • Development of models to predict Pinus radiata productivity throughout New Zealand

    Watt, Michael S.; Palmer, David John; Kimberley, Mark O.; Hock, Barbara K.; Payn, Tim W.; Lowe, David J. (NRC Research Press, 2010)
    Development of spatial surfaces describing variation in productivity across broad landscapes at a fine resolution would be of considerable use to forest managers as decision support tools to optimize productivity. In New ...
  • Mapping and explaining the productivity of Pinus radiata in New Zealand

    Palmer, Jonathan G.; Watt, Michael S.; Kimberley, Mark O.; Hock, Barbara K.; Payn, Tim W.; Lowe, David J. (New Zealand Institute of Forestry, 2010)
    Mapping Pinus radiata productivity for New Zealand not only provides useful information for forest owners, industry stakeholders and policy managers, but also enables current and future plantations to be visualised, ...
  • Mapping the productivity of radiata pine

    Palmer, David John; Watt, Michael S.; Kimberley, Mark O.; Hock, Barbara K.; Payn, Tim W.; Lowe, David J. (NZFFA, 2010)
    Forest owners, investors and policy makers all want to know the spread and productivity of New Zealand’s current and future radiata plantation. David Palmer, a geo-spatial analyst at Scion, has combined advanced statistical ...
