- Improved efficiency of handling random effects in big data models fit using
`splm(..., local)`

and`spglm(..., local)`

. - Changed
`Matrix::rankMatrix(X, method = "tolNorm2")`

to`Matrix::rankMatrix(X, method = "qr")`

when determining linear independence in`X`

, the design matrix of explanatory variables. - Replaced an error message with a warning message when
`X`

has perfect collinearities (i.e., is not full rank). If this warning message occurs, it is possible that a subsequent error occurs while model fitting resulting from a covariance matrix that is not positive definite (i.e., a covariance matrix that is singular or computationally singular). - Improved efficiency of
`splm()`

when`spcov_type`

is`"none"`

and there are no random effects (#15). - Added a
`range_positive`

argument to`spautor()`

and`spgautor()`

that when`TRUE`

(the new default), restricts the range parameter to be positive. When`FALSE`

(the prior default), the range parameter may be negative or positive. - Updated the initial parameter grid search for
`spautor()`

and`spgautor()`

to include range parameter values near the lower and upper boundaries. - Minor documentation updates

- Fixed a bug that yielded improper predictions when performing local prediction (specifying
`local`

in a call to`predict(object, newdata, ...)`

) when the model object (`object`

) was fit using`splm(formula, ...)`

or`spglm(formula, ...)`

and`formula`

contained at least one call to`poly(..., raw = FALSE)`

. - Fixed a bug that caused big data models fit using
`splm(..., local)`

and`spglm(..., local)`

to fail when a user-specified local index was passed to`local`

that was a factor variable and at least one factor level not was observed in the local index. - Fixed a bug that caused models fit using
`splm(..., partition_factor)`

and`spglm(..., partition_factor)`

to fail when the partition factor variable was a factor variable and at least one factor level was not observed in the data. - Fixed a bug in
`spgautor()`

that inflated the covariance matrix of the fixed effects (accessible via`vcov()`

). - Fixed a bug in
`sp*(spcov_params, ...)`

simulation functions that caused an error when`spcov_params`

had class`"car"`

or`"sar"`

and`W`

was provided by the user.

- Set a default value of
`newdata_size = 1`

when`newdata_size`

was omitted while predicting`type = "response"`

for binomial families. - Improved computational efficiency of
`loocv(object)`

when`object`

was created using`splm()`

or`spglm()`

,`spcov_type`

was`"none"`

, and there were no random effects specified via`random`

. - Changed the number of k-means iterations from 10 to 30 (when fitting models using the
`local`

argument to`splm()`

or`spglm()`

). - Added bias and root-mean-squared-prediction error to
`loocv(object)`

. When`object`

was created using`splm()`

or`spautor()`

,`loocv(object)`

added the squared correlation between the observed data and leave-one-out predictions, regarded as a prediction r-squared. - Improved prediction efficiency (using
`predict()`

or`augment()`

) for`splm()`

objects when`spcov_type`

was`"none"`

and there were no random effects. - Minor error message updates.

- Fixed a bug that caused local prediction to fail when the fitted model used a partition factor (#13).
- Fixed a bug that caused significant increases in computational and memory demands when calling
`loocv(object, local, ...)`

if`object`

was created using`splm(..., random)`

or`spglm(..., random)`

(i.e., when random effects were specified via the`random`

argument to`splm()`

or`spglm()`

). - Fixed a bug that caused significant increases in computational and memory demands when calling
`loocv(object, local, ...)`

if`object`

was created using`splm(..., partition_factor)`

or`spglm(..., partition_factor)`

(i.e., when a partition factor was specified via the`partition_factor`

argument to`splm()`

or`spglm()`

).

- Predictions can now be made for prediction locations whose random effect levels are not present in the observed data
- When this occurs, the random-effect covariance between the observed data and these prediction locations is assumed to be zero.

- The default for
`local = TRUE`

in`splm()`

and`spglm()`

now uses the`kmeans`

assignment method with group sizes approximately equal to 100.- Previously, the
`random`

assignment method was used with group sizes approximately equal to 50.

- Previously, the
- The default for
`local = TRUE`

in`predict()`

and`augment()`

now uses 100 local neighbors.- Previously, 50 local neighbors were used.

- Added an
`spglm()`

function to fit spatial generalized linear models for point-referenced data (i.e., generalized geostatistical models).`spglm()`

syntax is very similar to`splm()`

syntax.- Poisson, negative binomial, binomial, beta, gamma, and inverse Gaussian families are accommodated.
`spglm()`

fitted model objects use the same generics as`splm()`

fitted model objects.

was an`sf`

object. - Fixed a bug in

that did not remove`NA`

values from the response. - Fixed a bug in
`splm()`

and`spautor()`

`covmatrix(object, newdata)`

that returned a matrix with improper dimensions when`spcov_type`

was`"none"`

. - Fixed a bug in
`predict()`

that caused an error when at least one level of a fixed effect factor was not observed within a local neighborhood (when the`local`

method was`"covariance"`

or`"distance")`

. - Fixed a bug in
`cooks.distance()`

that used the Pearson residuals instead of the standarized residuals.

- Added the
`varcomp`

function to compare variance components. - Added an error message when there are
`NA`

values in predictors. - Added an error message when the design (model) matrix is not invertible (i.e., perfect collinearities are detected).

from`"spmodRF"`

or`"spautorRF_list"`

from`"spmodRF_list"`

. - Methods corresponding to a generic function defined outside of
`spmodel`

are now all documented using an`.spmodel`

suffix, making it easier to find documentation of a particular`spmodel`

method for the generic function of interest. - Added an error when random effect grouping variables or partition factors are numeric.
- Added an error when random effect or partition factor levels in
`newdata`

are not also in`data`

. - Updated citation information.

`spmodel`

v0.3.0 changed the names of`spmod`

,`spmodRF`

,`spmod_list`

, and`spmodRF_list`

objects.

`splm()`

and`spautor()`

allow multiple models to be fit when the`spcov_type`

argument is a vector of length greater than one or the`spcov_initial`

argument is a list (with length greater than one) of`spcov_initial`

objects.- The resulting object is a list with class
`spmod_list`

. Each element of the list holds a different model fit. `glances()`

is used on an`spmod_list`

object to glance at each model fit.`predict()`

is used on an`spmod_list`

object to predict at the locations in`newdata`

for each model fit.

- The resulting object is a list with class
- Added the
`splmRF()`

and`spautorRF()`

functions to fit random forest spatial residual models.- The resulting object has class
`spmodRF`

(one spatial covariance) or`spmodRF_list`

(multiple spatial covariances) - These objects are built for use with
`predict()`

to perform prediction.

- The resulting object has class
- Added the
`covmatrix()`

function to extract covariance matrices from an`spmod`

object fit using`splm()`

or`spautor()`

. - Minor vignette updates.
- Minor documentation updates.

- Fixed a bug that prevents display of spatial covariance type in summary of
`spmod`

objects. - Fixed a bug that prevented prediction of factor variables when all levels of all factor variables did not appear in
`newdata`

.

- Updated unit tests so that they are compatible with an upcoming version of
`Matrix`

.

This is the initial release of spmodel.
