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. With over 12000 downloads in less than 2 years, SGeMS is used in many research groups and companies.
