We propose a generalization of Zhang’s coefficient of determination to generalized linear geostatistical models and illustrate its application to river-blindness mapping. The generalized coefficient of determination has a more intuitive interpretation than other measures of predictive performance and allows to assess the individual contribution of each explanatory variable and the random effects to spatial prediction. The developed methodology is also more widely applicable to any generalized linear mixed model.
