17 December 1999 Comparative study of terrain interpolation methods
Author Affiliations +
A comparative study of three terrain interpolation methods, Delaunay triangulation interpolation, Kriging interpolation and fractal interpolation is presented in this paper. The study uses simulated and real terrains. The simulated terrains are generated by the fractal method. Each terrain is subsampled and then interpolated by each of the three methods. The difference between the original terrain and the interpolated one yields the error surface. A comparison between the error distributions for the three methods of interpolation is presented.
