The Stanford Geostatistical Modeling Software (SGeMS) is an open-source computer package for solving problems involving spatially related variables. It provides geostatistics practitioners with a user-friendly interface, an interactive 3-D visualization, and a wide selection of algorithms. This practical book provides a step-by-step guide to using SGeMS algorithms. It explains the underlying theory, demonstrates their implementation, discusses their potential limitations, and helps the user make an informed decision about the choice of one algorithm over another. Users can complete complex tasks using the embedded scripting language, and new algorithms can be developed and integrated through the SGeMS plug-in mechanism. SGeMS was the first software to provide algorithms for multiple-point statistics, and the book presents a discussion of the corresponding theory and applications. Incorporating the full SGeMS software (now available from www.cambridge.org/9781107403246), this book is a useful user-guide for Earth Science graduates and researchers, as well as practitioners of environmental mining and petroleum engineering.Read more
- Includes online resources of the full SGeMS software and example scripts for generating the figures in the book, available from www.cambridge.org/9781107403246
- Each algorithm description is accompanied by an example demonstration, encouraging readers to replicate the examples to develop an intuition for the impact of individual parameters
- A tutorial chapter presents an overview of the software to the reader for a hands-on approach to discovering SGeMS (i.e. start SGeMS, interact with it, then refer to the book for details)
- Practical tips on which algorithm to use, common pitfalls, etc. are highlighted in grey boxes

Review of the hardback: 'At last: here is a publisher who has prepared a thoroughly practical and well presented guide to geostatistics together with software in a form which can be run by most on their own computer.' Geoscientist
26th Mar 2018 by HRagheb
This book is a comprehensive one that guid the users of the software step by step to reach a professional level of work I recommend it to students who want to work professionally
