klovan: Geostatistics Methods and Klovan Data

A comprehensive set of geostatistical, visual, and analytical methods, in conjunction with the expanded version of the acclaimed J.E. Klovan's mining dataset, are included in 'klovan'. This makes the package an excellent learning resource for Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Factor Analysis (FA), kriging, and other geostatistical techniques. Originally published in the 1976 book 'Geological Factor Analysis', the included mining dataset was assembled by Professor J. E. Klovan of the University of Calgary. Being one of the first applications of FA in the geosciences, this dataset has significant historical importance. As a well-regarded and published dataset, it is an excellent resource for demonstrating the capabilities of PCA, FA, kriging, and other geostatistical techniques in geosciences. For those interested in these methods, the 'klovan' datasets provide a valuable and illustrative resource. Note that some methods require the 'RGeostats' package. Please refer to the README or Additional_repositories for installation instructions. This material is based upon research in the Materials Data Science for Stockpile Stewardship Center of Excellence (MDS3-COE), and supported by the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration under Award Number DE-NA0004104.
