Co-kriging in SPlus ?

Hello everybody,

I'm trying to interpolate climatic data like precipation values and
fog-duration measured over the whole year and for every month. The
exploration area is the entire territory of germany so there is a
large amount of input data (> 1500 values). First I used variogram
analysis and ordinary kriging for geostatistical examination (made
with FUZZEKS).

In fact I've got quite good results, but I think there will be much
better results if I could include elevation data additionally. For
this case I would like to use the co-kriging method.

So my question is: Does anybody know or have a (freeware-)software
that allows me to apply co-kriging to my dataset? Another question:
Does anybody have further experiences in interpolating fog-data?

Thank you for your responses, best regards,
Gunther Schmidt
