We now have three new matrix variables xi , yi , and zi that correspond
to the interpolated data. We make a plot of the original data and the
interpolated surface:
hold on
axis tight
Where the points of the rectangular interpolation grid lie outside the
convex hull defined by the data, the values are interpolated as NaN and
are omitted from the surface plot. There are a variety of ways to do the
interpolation; these are described in the help entry for griddata .We
can use the interpolated data to plot a contour map of the seamount:
36.2 Triangular Gridding
matlab comes equipped with the following functions for use in defining
triangular grids:
griddata delaunay trimesh dsearch
convhull voronoi
trisurf tsearch
The idea is that for any set of points (distinct and with no colinear
subsets) in two dimensions, a set of triangles can be defined such that
(1) no points lie within any triangle's circumcircle and (2) the set com-
pletely covers the convex hull of the points. This idea is illustrated in this
