This work is devoted to the investigation of spatially distributed data. The use of geostatistics gives the opportunity to analyse the nature of this distribution, its spatial structure and to construct forecasting maps, together with maps showing variations of estimates. As an example, factual data on Chernobyl fallouts were used. The anisotropic nature of the distribution was taken into account. It is pointed out that the geostatistical method of forecasting and estimating errors makes it possible to optimize monitoring networks.
