In practice, application of geostatistical theory requires an integrated toolbox of statistical, geostatistical, spatial analysis and visualization techniques. This approach to the application of geostatistics for subsurface characterization is the focus of Practical Geostatistics, from a description of the data structures required, through discussion of the concepts, theory and application, to qualification of the end results. The linked, hypertext document structure facilitates the integration of theoretical discussion with detailed worked examples and numerous color images of computer visualization. It also allows multi-level progression through Practical Geostatistics at an overview, theoretical, application or interactive review level, with numerous links between. The document structure facilitates access to Practical Geostatistics through standard Internet browser technology on any computer platform.
