8. linear ?

block kriging, huh?  Would it be difficult to add punctual Kriging
and output site lists?

Is this just for plotting points and variograms?  If so, perhaps it
could be modified to use GNUPLOT or something that's available to
most everyone.  At one time, I put together a *crude* hack that
used the GRASS display. This would probably be the way to go
(is anyone listening? how easily could this be done?)

I started to do just what you are doing one summer, but gave up.
I'm am really looking forward to seeing what you put together.
If fact, I have several experiments planned that will utilize
your stuff. If I can be of any help, let me know.
