This course will demonstrate how to interpolate spatial data
This course will demonstrate how to interpolate spatial data. Spatial interpolation is the process of creating a continuous surface from discrete points. Generally, environmental phenomenon such as elevation and temperature are measured at individual locations. It is nearly impossible to measure a continuous phenomenon entirely. In GIS, we often wish to analyze and study such phenomenon as a continuous raster surface. To do so, we must estimate or predict the phenomenon at non-measured locations using spatial interpolation.
- Inverse distance weighted interpolation
- Spline interpolation
- Natural neighbor interpolation
- Ordinary Kriging interpolation
This course was created using QGIS 2.4 for Boundless Desktop 1.0. Functionality may differ in other versions.
