I work on Landsat 7 slc-off images and I would like to use the command to fill-in the missing pixels. The problem that I have is that the uses the "inverse distance weighting" (IDW) interpolation technique and I want to use the kriging geostatistical technique.

Do you have any idea how can I do it?

Thank you!

AFAIK, you can't. There are no other algorithms defined in GDALFillNodata():

If the note mentioned in the docs applies to you:

This algorithm is generally suitable for interpolating missing regions of fairly continuously varying rasters (such as elevation models for instance). It is also suitable for filling small holes and cracks in more irregularly varying images (like airphotos). It is generally not so great for interpolating a raster from sparse point data - see the algorithms defined in gdal_grid.h for that case.

you are probably fine with GDALFillNodata().
