The KRIGE2D Procedure

ODS Graphics

Statistical procedures use ODS Graphics to create graphs as part of their output. ODS Graphics is described in detail in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS.

Before you create graphs, ODS Graphics must be enabled (for example, by specifying the ODS GRAPHICS ON statement). For more information about enabling and disabling ODS Graphics, see the section Enabling and Disabling ODS Graphics in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS.

The overall appearance of graphs is controlled by ODS styles. Styles and other aspects of using ODS Graphics are discussed in the section A Primer on ODS Statistical Graphics in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS.

For additional control of the graphics that are displayed, see the PLOTS option in the section PROC KRIGE2D Statement.

ODS Graph Names

PROC KRIGE2D assigns a name to each graph it creates by using ODS Graphics. You can use these names to reference the graphs when using ODS Graphics. You must also specify the PLOTS= option indicated in Table 49.5.

Plot Description




Scatter plot of observed data and colored markers indicating observed values




Contour plots of the kriging prediction, surface of the prediction error, and outlines of the observation locations




Plots of the semivariogram models used for all prediction tasks
