Research output: Unpublished contribution to conferenceUnpublished Conference Paper


An interoperable web processing service (WPS) for the automatic interpolation of environmental data has been developed in the frame of the INTAMAP project. In order to assess the performance of the interpolation method implemented, a validation WPS has also been developed. This validation WPS can be used to perform leave one out and K-fold cross validation: a full dataset is submitted and a range of validation statistics and diagnostic plots (e.g. histograms, variogram of residuals, mean errors) is received in return. This paper presents the architecture of the validation WPS and a case study is used to briefly illustrate its use in practice. We conclude with a discussion on the current limitations of the system and make proposals for further developments.
