This work shows the procedure and application of the Krige’s method (or Kriging) for the analysis of the radiated power level for a Node B, through a set of samples of that power level taken in different positions and distances. These samples were obtained using specialized equipment which will allow to get geo-referenced measurements, and thus able to implement such a process of interpolation to generate coverage maps, making possible to know the distribution of power and therefore understanding the behavior and configuration of node B
