(Beginner) Geostastical Analyst - Memory Error

Hi All,

I am relatively new to geostastical analyst and am an archaeologist (generally with nothing more complicated than a shovel normally).

I am trying to undertake a kriging process of about 4,000 data points across Australia to explore human migration. However in the first instance the explore data>semi variogram simply crashes on me every time I use it, and the use of the geostatistical wizard comes up with an out of memory error message. I have reduced the dataset down to about 500 data points (whcih is way to low for my analysis unfortunately), and end up with the same results.

Any advice on where to go from here would be appreciated. Do I need a bigger computer?

Best wishes
