Re: GEOSTATS: Comparision of interpolation methods
- There have been quite a few comparisons of interpolation methods.
Usually, kriging of one flavor or another proves to be "best." For
Rouhani, S. 1986. Comparative Study of Ground-Water Mapping Techniques.
Ground Water v. 24, no. 2. pp 207-216.
You might also search the Journal of Mathematical Geology, which has many
articles on kriging and interpolation. One of my favorites is:
Englund E.J., 1990. A Variance of Geostatisticians. J. Math. Geol. v. 22,
no. 4. pp 417-455.
This article presents a comparison not only of the interpolation
algorithms but also the practitioners.
If you want some quick references from the net, visit
http://members.home.net/terrabyte/didyou.htm and look for the essay
"Interpolation for Fun and Profit." There's also an article on "Trend
