Could I suggest moving this question to the R-sig-geo list?
Please note that surf.ls() converts x and y to the [-1, +1] range to ensure that
higher powers of possibly very large absolute coordinate values do not cause
trouble, so that the surf.ls() and lm() models may differ anyway.
I believe that there is a bug in extractAIC.trls() - which I contributed to the
spatial package some years ago, with edf <- df.residual.trls(fit) rather than n
- df.residual.trls(fit). When this is corrected, for this case, the extractAIC()
