Have a look at the examples in the helpfile for variogram from the gstat

# no trend:
coordinates(meuse) = ~x+y
variogram(log(zinc)~1, meuse)
# residual variogram w.r.t. a linear trend:
variogram(log(zinc)~x+y, meuse)
# directional variogram:
variogram(log(zinc)~x+y, meuse, alpha=c(0,45,90,135))

# GLS residual variogram:
v = variogram(log(zinc)~x+y, meuse)
v.fit = fit.variogram(v, vgm(1, "Sph", 700, 1))
set = list(gls=1)
g = gstat(NULL, "log-zinc", log(zinc)~x+y, meuse, model=v.fit, set =

if (require(rgdal)) {
  proj4string(meuse) = CRS("+init=epsg:28992")
  meuse.ll = spTransform(meuse, CRS("+proj=longlat"))
# variogram of unprojected data, using great-circle distances, returning
km as units
  variogram(log(zinc) ~ 1, meuse.ll)

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more
than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to
say what the experiment died of.

Dear all can you help me? i have this problem: i have a dataset in a
text file 
in a matrix of 3 columns: x, y, z where x and y are the coordinates and
Z are 
the mesurements. How  can i do a variogram with R?
