Geostatistical Environmental Assessment Software (GEOEAS)

Geostatistical Environmental Assessment Software (GEOEAS) is a collection of interactive software tools for performing two-dimensional geostatistical analyses of spatially distributed data. The principal function of the package is the production of grids and contour maps of interpolated (kriged) estimates from sample data. GEOEAS can produce data maps, univariate statistics, scatter plots/linear regression, and variogram computation and model fitting.

Version 1.2.1
Release Date April 1991
Development Status General Release
Operating System UNIX, DOS

Minimum System Requirements

This system was designed to run under DOS on an IBM PC, XT, AT, PS2, or compatible computer. Graphics capability is not required, but is highly recommended because most programs will produce graphics output. Graphics support is provided for the Hercules graphics card, the CGA, and the EGA. At least 512 KB of RAM is required, but 640 KB is recommended. An arithmetic co-processor chip is strongly recommended due to the computationally intensive nature of the programs, but is not required for use. Programs may be run from floppy disk; however, a fixed disk is required to use the programs from the system menu. The system storage requirement is approximately 3 MB. For a hard copy of results, a graphics printer (IBM graphics compatible) is required. Support is provided for plotters that accept HPGL plotting commands.

Installation Instructions

  1. Refer to the user’s manual for further instructions.
  2. Go to Windows Explorer and create a directory named GEOEAS.
  3. Download the executable and program files to the new directory.
  4. From the new directory, run by double-clicking on the file.
  5. Unzip the files to the new directory.
  6. Download and review the user’s manual for instructions on running the model.
