Kriging is well-known, frequently applied method in geo-statistics. Its success primarily depends on the total number of measurements for some sample points. If there are sufficient sample points with measurements, kriging will reflect the surface accurately. Obtaining a sufficient number of measurements can be costly and time-consuming. Thus, different companies might obtain a limited number of measurements of the same region and want to offer predictions collaboratively. However, due to privacy concerns, they might hesitate to cooperate with each other.
