[…] election of variables and error estimation. As described in the introduction section, spatial cross validation (SCV) was employed and non-spatial cross-validation (CV) was calculated separately. The “sperrorest” and “errorest” packages in R software were used for this part of the analysis [,]. To be more specific, in order to obtain alternative estimates of the confidence intervals, a non-overlapp […]
