Hello everybody,
I'm stuck up at some point of performing IDW.
The problem is :
"I performed IDW for EMF levels from cell phone towers. The resulting Mean Prediction error in cross-validation is -0.0081."
I've read about Mean Prediction Error and RMS Prediction Error in IDW on ArcGIS websites. But nowhere is it mentioned about what conclusions to draw if the Mean Prediction Error has a negative value
I've attached a screen-shot of the summary statistics.
Thanks in anticipation
Cross-validation of IDW
