Analysis of Rainfall Data by Simple Good Sense: is Spatial Statistics Worth the Trouble ?
This paper discusses the use of simple good sense in the spatial prediction of rainfall measurements in Switzerland. The method consists of a forecast based on the values of the available observations combined with topographic knowledge of the Swiss territory. Comparison of our subjective estimates with the true measurements is completed and yields surprisingly good results.
