**deterministic model** - [spatial statistics (use for geostatistics)] In spatial modeling, a type of model or a part of a model in which the outcome is completely and exactly known based on known input; the fixed or nonrandom components of a spatial model. The spline and inverse distance weighted interpolation methods are deterministic since they have no random components. The kriging and cokriging interpolation methods may have a deterministic component, often called the trend.
