In this project we attempt to develop complex state-space models for spatial data that are (i) observed indirectly through non-linear measurement operators, (ii) highly non-stationary, (iii) inherently multivariate with dynamic, complex correlation structures, (iv) subject to spatial misalignment and non-linear change-of support characteristics, and are (v) collected in huge quantities. Such data are, for example, collected by modern earthwork compaction rollers which are equipped with sensors allowing a virtually continuous flow of soil property measurements. The statistical methodology that will be developed in this project can subsequently be used for the design of an intelligent continuous compaction control system.
