Given the scarcity of studies involving 3D maps on the chemical characteristics of citrus fruits, methods already employed in the analysis of threedimensional variability of soil properties (Choi & Park, 2006, He et al., 2010), three-dimensional display of forest landscapes (Lim & Honjo, 2003) and ground magnitude and impedance (Karaoulis et al., 2011), albeit not in fruit culture, were used in current study to identify the spatial variability structure of the variables by means of geostatistics and ordinary kriging interpolation.
(2012), modeling the spatial dependence structure of soil attributes and variables related to plants, using geostatistics techniques, has been performed to understand their distributions in a given area as well as correlating them spatially with crop yields.
