Maybe a data management problem, not too sure, but likely a challenge which someone has dealt with before.
I have a time series of rasters. I can summarise the information by taking averages of each raster and then plotting the averages with time (which is what is shown in the image). I also want to show a spatial representation and produce a map of the interpolated history on the polygon area of a site.
The green data points are the averages from each of the rasters. The fine dashed line is the expected/modelled performance. The red line with square data points is the hand fitted curve of what I "know to be true", something between the model and the measured values, an interpolation. Unfortunately the relationship with time is not amenable to regression, at least not with any of the simplistic tools I use. Note that there is tail on the curve which the model shows but the lack of measurements at that time is ignorant of.
I would like the hand fitted curve/model to be modified by each of the rasters so that a final map can be created. The extent of variation is about 0.9 - 1.35 on the max values, this substantial when the whole lot are summed.
Experienced workers will recognise the feature being plotted, thats great, but I suspect it would be a common problem in many other disciplines as well.
I am looking for solutions I could implement in QGIS and GRASS.
