region 0 0 1800 0 0 1800

This part describes the region the user wants to obtain kriged values for. It consists of three coordinates, which must describe a rectangle (the rectangles' borders need not be parallel to the axes):

- the bottom left corner
- the bottom right corner
- the top left corner

The same coordinate system is used as in the table.

Optionally an area may follow. This is a list of coordinates which will be used as polygon in order to clip the region outside this polygon when displaying kriging results. (There is no difference in the calculations, but only on the display.)

This list follows immediately after the first three coordinates. - cuts

cuts 1 0.75 0.5 0.25 0

This part describes the resolution of the fuzziness. It must start with 1 and end with 0. The smaller the steps are, the finer is the resolution.

In FUZZEKS fuzzy numbers are represented by so-called level-cuts (for FUZZEKS intervals of values where the membership function value is greater the level (or equal the level if the level is 1)).

If you like an impression of the effects of the level-cuts list, have a look at 0D spatial viewing (view at point).

For the level-cuts list above the level-cuts for levels from the set {1, 0.75, 0.5, 0.25, 0} are available in the result. - parameters

parameters Cl_Concentration Clay_Content Hydraulic_conductivity (log10) Water_table_depth

This part lists the names of the parameters.If your data needs a logarithmic transformation, additionally the information should be given that some parameters are to be transformed (by the expression "(log10)") before calculations are done, which implies that values are back-transformed before they are displayed or written to an ASCII-file.

Also a default fuzziness can be given by adding e.g. "(+/-2)", which means that all the entries in the table that look like a crisp number are taken as the triangular fuzzy number with possibilities from the given number -2 to the given number +2 (this is referred to as

*0-cut*).

"(+1/-2)" e.g. allows asymetrical membership functions.- Example:

... cuts 1 0.5 0 ... parameters z (+/-2) ... table x y z ... 0 0 10

is the same as

... cuts 1 0.5 0 ... parameters z ... table x y z ... 0 0 10/0.5:9-11/0:8-12

The parameters for X- and Y-coordinate are implicitly defined to be "X" and "Y".The parameter list may be left empty (no table follows then). That makes it possible to define a new region only.

- Example:
- table

table X Y Water_table_depth Hydraulic_conductivity Clay_content Cl_concentration 165 1630 3.9 0.000003000 12 20 460 1690 4.0 0.000001000 13 30 435 1500 4.5 0.000000600 17 40 105 1265 4.5 0.000001000 15 40 300 1080 5.0 0.000000400 17 75 560 1240 5.4/0:4.4-6.4 0.7e-7/0:0.7e-8-0.7e-6 22/0:17-27 80/0:50-130 1010 1600 3.8 0.000000100 14 65 ...

The main part are the tables. In this example only one is used.

Coordinates - written as pairs of X and Y entries - must appear in every line and have to be crisp (usual real numbers).

All other parameters may contain fuzzy numbers.Entries of the form "

**5.4 / 0: 4.4 - 6.4**" are fuzzy numbers. The meaning of this expression would be:

- The most possible value is
**5.4**.

This is being referred to as*1-cut*. - Possible values are in the range
**[4.4, 6.4]**.

This is being referred to as*0-cut*. - The
*level-cuts*(for levels in the range (0,1) ) are linear interpolated from the given level-cuts, so this is a triangular fuzzy number, because no other level-cuts are specified.

For a detailed description of the way to write down fuzzy numbers, see The grammar of FDF-inputdata-files (see "fvalue" there).**Remark:**The entries like "**5.0**" are crisp numbers. The*level-cut*(for levels in the range [0,1) ) would be**[5.0, 5.0]**if considered as fuzzy number (crisp nubers are a special case of fuzzy numbers). Of course this holds only if no default fuzziness has been specified in the "parameters"-section.

- The most possible value is

A DECISEPCHARACTER-statement may appear just before all above sections, e.g.:

means that the real number "one and a half" is written "1,5" instead of "1.5" ("." is default).

Additionally an UNDEFSTRING- and a DELIMITERSTRING-statement may appear
just before the table section, e.g.:

**undefstring is $**

**delimiterstring is !**

allows to write this table-section

table X !Y ! a ! b ! c 0 !0 ! 1 ! $ ! 2.5 1 !0 ! $ ! 6 ! 7/6-10

instead of the "normal" one ("undef" and (nothing) are default):

table X Y a b c 0 0 1 undef 2.5 1 0 undef 6 7/6-10
