Which Grid Interpolation Method should I use?

  • 1.  Which Grid Interpolation Method should I use?

    One question that we hear often is which of the Grid Interpolation methods would be best to use for a certain set of data and what the difference is between the different methods.

    One of our Raster Software Engineers, @Sam Roberts, has written two comprehensive articles covering this topic.

    1. What gridding method should I use? – Part 1 "The decision" 
    In this article Sam discusses the different source dataset, the style of the interpolation methods and some considerations to keep in mind when selecting a method.

    2. ​​What gridding method should I use? – Part 2 "The results"
    In the second article, Sam uses the different source dataset in a number of different interpolation methods to give you a better understanding of how the resulting grid will look.

    Are you ever in doubt when you need to pick an interpolation method?
