Inverse Distance Weighted, Kriging, Palm Oil
Basal Stem Rot is a diseases that caused by Ganoderma Boinense that is the most serious disease for oil palm trees in Malaysia. The analysis of plant disease has been carried extensively with the advancement in computer technology. Particularly, in terms of spatial and temporal, it is very complicated to be processed. Furthermore, the application of GIS in plant disease analysis is becoming more popular, precise and advance. In previous studies, Kriging has been used to predict the pattern of BSR disease. In this study, two commonly used interpolation methods for GIS, Kriging and Inverse Distance Weighting (IDW), are used to interpolate and predict the pattern of Basal Stem Rot disease. Since the IDW method is an exact method and is more accurate one, it was expected to see more accurate results. However, the accuracy results of both methods are the same. Based on the characteristic of both methods and according to advantages and disadvantages, the Inverse Distance Weighted is recommended in this study but, for more informative data, Ordinary Kriging is suggested to be the preferable method to be used as an alternative method. .
