If you generate the Semivariogram using Geostatistical wizard. it will show you the Semivariogram map at the bottom of the window. (which looks like a raster map) (following image)
when you move the mouse pointer on the map, two numbers will pop up for each pixel one is the Value of the cell and the other one is the Weight.
I understand that the "Value" should be the average of moment of inertia of the pairs in that specific bin But I don't know what is the "Weight"? I could not find anything regarding to this number in the manual.
I would appreciate if someone could shed some light on this for me.
Looking at your graphic, it looks like you've decided to use quadrants 1 and 4. The shadow of the (1,1) bin may extend into the 2nd and 3rd quadrants. The shadow in the 2nd quadrant needs to be inflected into quadrant 4, and the shadow from quadrant 3 needs to be inflected to quadrant 1. These weights need to be added to the weights that are already in those quadrants.
Here's a quick test: make two points with the same coordinates so that their vector plots at the origin. The (1,1) and (1,-1) bins should each get a weight of 0.5 (they'll each get 0.25 naturally, then another 0.25 from the inflection).
If that doesn't work, I don't think I can help you. You've pretty much exhausted my knowledge of our binning mechanism.
When you hover over a cell in the semivariogram map, the weight you see is the number of pairs of points that fall within that bin. The reason the weights aren't whole numbers is that the individual weight of each pair is distributed into the surrounding bins. For example, if a pair of points falls exactly on the corner between 4 square bins, each of those bins will get a weight of 0.25 from that pair. If the pair falls exactly at the center of a square bin, that bin will get a full weight of 1, and all other bins will get 0 weight. The "Weight" in the semivariogram map is the sum of all weights for all pairs of points within that bin.
If that explanation wasn't clear, please read the above paper.
Regarding the boundary cells, the description is on page 6. Also, there's a picture of the triangular kernels in Figure 6 (in the appendix).
And the averaging of the bins is the average of the semivariances of all pairs within that bin. The trick is that there are actually two binning mechanisms: one involves gridded cells and the other uses concentric circles (Figures 2 and 3 in the appendix). In the semivariogram UI, the red dots come from the gridded cells, and the blue crosses come from the concentric circles. These circular bins are what are actually used to fit the semivariogram (the red dots are more for diagnostic information and for calculating the semivariogram map). The semivariogram parameters are estimated using weighted least-squares, where the weights come from the (modified) number of points that fall within each circular bin.
I have seen the method in which the pairs were weighted on the cell (bin) boundaries and I used it to manually calculate the bin value but from the boundary cells, what I meant is the cells (bins) which are located close to the center axe lines of the SV map. (i.e. SV map is drawn on a Cartesian axes, the center of these axes are located in the center of the map circle)
Cells on these boundary bins have a slightly different value. that I am not sure where it comes from
Remember that the vector between two points, A and B, can be defined two ways: from A to B and from B to A. For this reason, the bins in the 1st and 3rd quadrants are identical, and so are the bins in the 2nd and 4th quadrants. This is why the semivariogram map is symmetrical about the two diagonals.
Keeping this in mind, you need to pick two quadrants to use (we use the 1st and 2nd), then you'll need to inflect any weights that fall into the 3rd and 4th quadrants. Be careful not to double-count each pair.
I talked this over with the developer that programmed the semivariogram functions, and we're not sure why your red bands aren't matching ours. We suspect that you have a bug in the part of the algorithm that inflects weights that cross over the axes, but we're not sure.
When you're inflecting the weights, make sure that you are rotating them rather than just mirroring them. That could be the problem.
