TriScatteredInterp class


(Not recommended) Interpolate scattered data


TriScatteredInterp is not recommended. Use scatteredInterpolant instead.


TriScatteredInterp is used to perform interpolation on a scattered dataset that resides in 2-D or 3-D space. A scattered data set defined by locations X and corresponding values V can be interpolated using a Delaunay triangulation of X. This produces a surface of the form V = F(X). The surface can be evaluated at any query location QX, using QV = F(QX), where QX lies within the convex hull of X. The interpolant F always goes through the data points specified by the sample.

Value. To learn how this affects your use of the class, see Comparing Handle and Value Classes in the MATLAB® Object-Oriented Programming documentation.


Create a data set:

x = rand(100,1)*4-2;
y = rand(100,1)*4-2;
z = x.*exp(-x.^2-y.^2);
Construct the interpolant:
F = TriScatteredInterp(x,y,z);
Evaluate the interpolant at the locations (qx, qy). The corresponding value at these locations is qz:
ti = -2:.25:2;
[qx,qy] = meshgrid(ti,ti);
qz = F(qx,qy);
hold on;
