The btg program
The btg program is an implementation of the
Bayesian Transformed Gaussian (BTG) spatial prediction model
proposed by De Oliveira, Kedem, and Short. The program can
The btg program is written for the Unix operating system.
Precompiled versions are available for several architectures;
and, since the source code is included, users can compile their
own binaries to take full advantage of their systems.

When you have unarchived the program, look in the provided README
file for information on how to finish the installation.
If you have difficulties installing the program, ask your system
administrator for assistance.
There are a few precompiled versions of the program that
use optimized versions of LAPACK and BLAS routines.
LAPACK and BLAS are used by the program, but a translation
into C of the necessary routines is included with the
