Abstract The purpose of analysis of spatial data should determine the approach to be adopted. If estimation is concerned with detailed local interpretation rather than some form of global averaging, then kriging would seem to be an inappropriate method. This is especially so for the interpolation of precise observations which consequently are better estimated by deterministic methods. Five such efficient direct automatic interpolation methods are discussed and applied to the contour mapping of… Expand
